You open the pages of books and your nails splinter

Crack freshly bound spines cruelly

Lay bare random words?

You open books

To find the messages you want to see.

If the message is not there

You imbue it into the resisting lines.

Ink smears across the page

Your heart clenches smaller inside its suffocating glove.

A truth so fresh it startles

You close the book

Place it behind college textbooks from 1963

This book is too powerful for you.
