Turning pages

I want this life to be neat and tidy
A book with all of its chapters written
So I can skip ahead to see the resolution
(Because I am impatient like that sometimes.)
Even a table of contents
Would be helpful,
With titles clearly showing
The trajectory of the tale.
I don’t always like this reading along
The plodding narrative that builds up
And yet, habitual peeper at pages that I am,
There is a loss of some indefinable delight,
The endless possibility of all that just might be,
When I'm reading towards an end already known.
