The Editor Has Come UnMoored In Time by Neil Willcox

The editor has come unmoored in time.
She has read this poem sometime before;
Events do not follow their proper line.
Behind her she hears the slam of a door.

She has read this poem sometime before,
The end is a disconcerting half-rhyme,
Behind her she hears the slam of a door,
A delivery for which she must sign.

The end is a disconcerting half-rhyme.
She detects an unsettling metaphor,
A delivery for which she must sign,
She turns the last page and wants an encore.

She detects an unsettling metaphor;
Events do not follow their proper line.
She turns the last page and wants an encore
The editor has come unmoored in time.
