The End Is Only the Beginning

After watching the film Keep the Lights On

 

Old relationships

never really die;

instead, they mutate

like rogue viruses,

changing their form

to re-infect you

in more complex ways;

recur chronically

once they’re in the blood.

 

The brain responds,

altering its needs,

learning to exist

symbiotically;

or building greater

immune resistance;

or yielding to host

stubborn parasite.
