2020-09-20 – Greedy Reader

i’ll compose us
as fiction,

to preserve you,
in marble,

to stitch your skin
into the page,

i’ll read it over, i’ll stroke
its yellowed gold

i’ll rip each crispy leaf
from its binding and
chew, chew to
swallow it


to fully digest it
to feel you

at depths more

..long as my greedy reader’s allowed.
