POEM: Intolerable Status Quo

By Berniegourley @berniegourley
POEM: Intolerable Status Quo

They say that every story begins
with an intolerable status quo.

Who it's intolerable for is an open question.

Maybe it's the protagonist...
Maybe not.

[Some protagonists spend the whole story
trying to get back to that status quo.]

Maybe it's the antagonist...
Maybe not.

Sometimes, the status quo is intolerable to the universe -
(as every status quo must become.)

And every non-blissful moment of living
is an intolerable status quo -
a state in search of [or hope for]
a better state to come.
