What the book wants

 What The Book Wants 


when you put it down 

you’re far from done 

thoughts demand action 

demanding blood


you could read another 

but you’d just move deeper 

as you search for signs 

of literacy in the world 


They stir up the memories

Rearrange the thoughts

I don’t think they resonate 

Unless they touch on love


And then it spills out of your mind

Catches on your tongue 

You expel it from your body 

Thinking it was somehow yours
