28 October: The Edge of Books

boy reading in bed

The Edge of Books

Turn and turn the page,
twice then thrice, this book and I
have the night alone.

Pages talk from yesterday,
when the sea called the child in me,
and the universe
opened like a distant beach where

aye, a ship can sink
in waves white and ankle-deep.

And what were those last
three magic words right before
I fell asleep.

    1. The last time we we took to the cinema, we saw The King’s Speech. So that was quite a while ago.
