An Original Poem

How To Find Me

And there I sat, engrossed in the unknown.

A sea of foreign bodies determined to

consume my night and days.

Surrounded by a stream of endless cloudy

skies and blinded senseless from aged leather.

And there I sat, doomed to repeat - cycle after cycle -

the mindless wandering into the senses of another.

The last page turns, shut. My eyes follow

the gentle curves along the spine.

Hot pink letters stare longingly at me,

wishing we had another page.

Just one more page.

I curl my fingers around hot ceramic,

where fire rises from its center,

draws me in until my tongue

screams out and my eyes roll back

with pure delight.

My belly softens, relaxing into

microplush blankets and snuggling

deeper with my grandfather’s coat.

A snore rouses from underneath.

Reaching behind me, I tuck

the world away and begin

searching for another. Ready

to repeat the cycle.
