REAL TO REEL

Committing real life to save for posterity,
you lose some clarity in the translation.
No preparation can set you up for
what’s in store, and what’s more,
it would do no good. You would still
play in a continuous loop. And no matter
how many times you rerun your life,
you’ll never know how it ends
until the tape ends. And you’ll come to find
it’s not that kind when you rewind.
