Third Act Synopsis

i am having thoughts
where i keep livestock and think of Dante
and whatever her name is
she was always known as “the woman”
and has to be portrayed in serial movies
loosely based on short fiction
she screens phone calls
and never lets the mobsters in
this is a familiar geometric pattern
in old fashioned tragic opera
where i am the one who gets killed to prove
to the audience just how serious this is
and the last twenty minutes is spent
declaring mistaken identities
