    I write books,
    so I should know when a story is finished.
    It's like my own version of Exodus.
    I scream "May God give you peace!"
    Then throw that book, into the flames.
    I don't know peace, why should you?
    Because, you are good.
    And favored, by all the gods.
    And I am the halo,
    that helped you get there
    by cleaning up my beautiful messes.
    And cleansing my chaotic mind.
