Interest is not meant to be sustained
By trickling awards. In leaps and bounds
It peaks and stagnates. As a new king reigned
We watched despite raging, dissonant sounds
That complicated everything. A streak,
No matter how glorious, is defined
By how and when it ends. The bright mystique
Of record rallies fails to bring to mind
The subsequent anticlimax, once myth
Has swallowed actuality at times.
Only the future will tell us if with
Or without coda these melodic chimes
Will echo. We can never know what plot
Will pique our interest-or what will not.
