O, to write some fiction

O, to write some fiction,

beginning serenely, and then dissolving
into conflict and crises until resolving
and then ending keenly.

But is life like fiction?

Or, is it random snippets of stories mixing
conflict and crises, never fixing —
fragments in search of a proper home?

In other words, very much like a poem.
