The Trajectory of a Life

The storyline depends
on the words once said
or the words swallowed
The plot cannot subsist
on what might have been
It deals in a concrete landscape
where each character moves
according to the unspooling
of a script dependent
on the words and actions of yesterday,
No erasers are issued
No going backward to insert
different lines, other events
And if you're lucky 
you can jump in and add
some new lines
if the author agrees
