Leave it on the floor

So many ways to leave a story.
Nab scissors and snip yourself out of the photo.
Scream till your lungs bleed.
Tiptoe quietly like a ninja and close the shades.
Strap on ballet slippers and spin till you are dizzy and faint.
Stroll out in the desert and melt.
Wail and flail until you drown in a pond of chickpea soup.
Or just slam book shut and toss it over a ledge.
