Core - Poem by Lynne RBC

Hesitate not to penetrate
like a wide-eyed kid
who eternally flips the pages.
For surely he can never unravel
the reason of the little prince
nor untangle the mystery of jack who rips
with just a chip on the sealed corners of this book.
Neither can you reckon my soul
with only this body to look.


The core can't be that far
just beneath this scar.
Delve deeper.
