The Circle

by Jodey Bateman

(for JaySun)
*

"Full Circle” by the Byrds


Funny how a circle turns around
First you’re up – and then you’re down again.
Though the circle takes what it may give
Each time around – it makes it live again.
Funny how a circle is a wheel
And it can steal someone who is a friend.
Funny how a circle takes its flight
And if it’s right – it brings you back again.


In the world of this novel, history has followed some very
different courses, as the reader will notice from time to time.
