Midlife Crisis

You cast your life behind you
like a chameleon casting skin.
Like in some YA fantasy, where
reality turns slippery, you fall into
the tapestry you’re eying
and have adventures to the din
of worlds colliding.
Where a dying unicorn
sings to save the world.
Lives are cheap; you can always
invent another.

With apologies to Alan Garner.
