“You can tell a more over-the-top incredible story if you use a nonfiction form.” —Chuck Palahniuk

Rain Polish 1

All tales now wending
This one begins
In the alternate endings
Refreshed by rain

A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order

—Jean-Luc Godard

Rain Polish two

Alternate endings
Like rain’s refrains
Invite prequels now pending
To start again

It’s never too late – in fiction or in life – to revise

—Nancy Thayer

Rain Polish 3

Alternate endings
Night rain hoary
Morning glory opening
A new story

If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolour

—Isabel Allende

Rain Polish

Time’s dust luster shrouds
Rain rips the veil
Alternate endings burst clouds
Here starts our tale 

The pattern of the narrative never of necessity wants to end, it never has to

—Robert Creeley
