At ‘closes in the consequence’ –

Out of context, of course, this phrase makes no sense – but its repetition serves as the trigger for Polonius’ memory. This is the third ‘Closes In the Consequence’ and the more it gets repeated, the more the words get abstracted and seem to shift from meaning to sound and rhythm. Closes in the consequence is fun to say and gets more and more pleasurable the more times I say it.
Closes in the consequence.
Closes in the consequence.
Closes in the consequence.
__________________/     u    u  ________  /      /    u
Looking at it, repeated, consequence becomes con-sequence
And there’s a sequence in its consequential quality
Until it closes, of course.
