Eating Poetry

Rating: 4.2
Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

The librarian does not believe what she sees.
Her eyes are sad
and she walks with her hands in her dress.

The poems are gone.
The light is dim.
The dogs are on the basement stairs and coming up.

great poem with great images...simply loved the way it begins and ends, making it clear that it is the dog who is eating the poetry book...
