the plight of the bookworm

the bookworm devours page after page

a letter, a syllable, a word at a time -

dutifully inching line upon line,

searching for something to savour.

does she truly know

the precious thing of which she partakes -

always trailing through another man's history,

another soul's wake,

when will she make her own?

stacy this is superb
i'm really enjoying the new style that is emerging in your artwork
and this prose is delicious
worthy of a nematode's feast ;-)
