B is for Beginning

How to begin? Where is the start and which way do we trend?
Is the kickoff a bang? It’s a big thing to pretend,
That there is a launch and a line to the end.
Like a candle burning down with marks for each when.

But say there’s a start,
Then a moving apart.
To a place off the chart?
Come on have a heart!

If we can expand surely there’s a contract.
The past need not reach for a point so compact.
If the path must be straight, perhaps it’s switchbacked?
Like string feeling quarky is sometimes unslacked.
