from godbwye (1570s), itself a contraction of God be with ye (late 14c.)

We like to think of life
as episodes –
but episodes are magic
thinking, sinking:

done – foregone –
as quickly as begun.
The scheme
of narrative won’t hold.

Although hello
is nice to hear
and sadness may ensue
when you or I effect

to disappear
and say good-bye,
sequence is a dream,
my dear. All is here.
