A Book Falls

A Book Falls (By Cat Matchuk)


A book falls, I fall.

The proper thing to do is to pick it up, dust it off and hold it close to your heart.
Not me, not this time.

Set the book down on the spine, let it fall open naturally,

I was open the entire time.

Close your eyes and trace your finger along the lines,
And read the first line.
notice, that I have no lines,
no pages,

no more words.
