Incineration

He burned

all his discarded tales,

For fear that within

each

artificial World

There

would be left alive

some few people

Believing their existence on paper conferred

The status of

Reality.

And then he feared

That

his own existence

and world

might well

Be a discarded tale

from God’s typewriter,

Awaiting

Incineration.
