Group 15 is mainly the disturbing aftermath to Group 14, the shock of change and the impact of Klimax being clearly visible. It is also a close continuation and sister to its predecessor, with Fuga and Klimax having been written partly simultaneously, and Broke Down originally being intended as the category closer for category 14.2.

The love poetry constituting the bulk of non-syllogy material in this group has now lost its positive outlook, describing the feeling of being hurt, of being left alone, discarded, trying to cope with the loss, and looking for analysis and redefinition. Broke Down is the epitome of that in this group.

Fuga stands out as my first attempt modeled very closely after a literary precursor, a short story by Joyce Carol Oates. It thus follows an own logic, less influenced by the development in the love poetry, but also drawing from the discourse of the sublime carried out in Klimax.

The End is not just the end of that group, nor of the love poetry line, but much more a cleaning the slate for the new year, for the new millennium (in a mathematical sense). Phases One and Two are being closed shortly before the end of the year, older projects either terminated or finished, so that after The End can come The Beginning.
