Bookworm’s Dilemma

~
leafing through life’s book
I searched for dog eared pages
lightly penciled in for later contemplation
now, much later
these phrases intersect, contradict
creating an uproar
~
context and way heart
mind had emotionally swerved
at those particular moments in time,
had lent them special magic
now, I feel nothing
~
gently releasing these special pages
I carefully straighten them out
feel and rustle of real pages
of a real meaty book always
inject a heady high
all its own
~
