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
and mind 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
