Beyond the Verso

I turn my bookmark face-side-down
when stopping on the recto, and
invert it should I ever pause
at the bottom of any page

Watching the Running Spot

I stared at the symbols for years until
they were no longer alien and I was no longer illiterate.

Not Quite Eclipse

Outside reading

clouds part
sun-photons come
beaming down
I stare

but for a moment

clouds merge
gray again
I return to the page

residual sunspots
there in my brain
wreak havoc
with punctuation

Chagall 2015
