Their Final Refrain

by Brianna Buzzanco

"It begins with a fork in the road and a potential parting of ways,

a memory interrupted by an arrow,

a dream of devastation,

and a query.

It flourishes in petty competitions and surprises,

two Jessies

several Jims,

yellow-haired heroines,

something queer,

strange arrivals,

Headless Headcheese,

war,

peace,

and the making of enemies and friends.

It ends with a vow to stand together,

a celebration,

a tour,

and the closing of a book.

But then it never truly ends,

because when something truly ends

one is assuming that

the story

was

about

them."
