for Kris, for Cathi, for Friendship

 

I am in many books

My own, of course

My brother’s,

My sister’s, and

Even yours

Now that you have become

My reader.

 

Do I tarry awhile

Or jump out, never

To regain your

Consciousness or

Do I join again, pages

From now

In some other context

 

Will I be a friend

Or a villain, a

Lover or a mere

Passing acquaintance

Come to bring

Irreparable harm; or everlasting glee

Or perhaps just a ghost

 

The pages of these

Books, are written

Everyday, the outcome

Unbeknown to all but

The Ancient

Of Days, quickly

Turn out the light.

 

 

 

 

There Is A Page

for Kris, for Cathi, for Friendship

 

I heard it said

To get what you want

Give up the chase

But what if it’s a Kiss

Would I still want

To transverse the page?
