i live within the covers of a book

sleep between pages.wake up with page turners/pot boilers
grab plot points as moral compass.eyes traverse verses
translate prosaic into memorable/REPEAT
re-screen images that edit miracles QUICKLY!
go back only for lost thoughts/wild geese
patterns of pilgrimage ancient and continuing
Imprint habits matrix.We are not lost-just map reading/
integrating directions INNER through LABYRINTHS
until a brighter path lamps our bed ,and we alpha smile
Home again.

you text and train me-to be small screen and thumb scroll
to live via look rather than h/ear.Your world as small as a screen
you dream digital/play games.ANGRY BIRDS with hard sound tracks
the toy you hold in your palm will pilot drones
the paths your eyes traverse old as scrolls
Ages live in different rooms.Memory remembers formats
but forgets programing.Teach me the wonders of text without meaning
and i will read you like a book.
