By the time it's 
all over, 
instead of a story, 

I hope that my life
presents more 
like a painting—

brazen and wide, 
and hung right 
at eye-level, 

so that everyone who enters 
cannot help 
but regard it—

but no one
may come 

to say for certain 
what I've done—

only to see 
the totality 

of me having done it 
all at once.
