in poem •  last month 

Books and balconies
On every side

Written, read,
From sleeping shelves

A to B
And back again

Warhol to Wurlitzer
Walden to Wen

When I was young,
Bindings pressed

My palms were given
Quizzes and tests

And then I loathed
Forced reading

But here it seems
Authors summon

Spirits consume
Readers gazes

And give off
Silence that clothes

My ignorance
