Disorder

These descriptions of life,
Of incidents and adventures,
Of people and surroundings,
With all the assumed significance
In the incidental details,
Arranged in tidy order
To counter-balance the
Sensation of border-line chaos,

Lie somewhere in between
Such various extremes
As epics, fairy-tales,
Soap opera and satire,
And it's often as much
A challenge to tell which is which
As it is to see them happen
In the first person.
