ampersanding right along,

ampersanding right along,
every next thing added on,
scads of next things every day,
adding on in every way,
covering what used to be,
with lists of continuity,
the ands intact, the ands control,
the ands forever on a roll,
& us
& them
& in between,
& everything we’ve heard
& seen
& smelled
& touched
is all contained,
is ampersanded in our brains
