Well Read - Poem by keith brown

Like Bookends
Without books
they lay
aside
An empty space
No treatise here
nor commerce
No tight bound spine or dusty cover
Nor leafy paged tome that
echoes
the chatter of a thousand
Noisy dreams

Just space,
Blank as an empty page
Only the passing of time and
Dog eared familiarity
Scribe a faint hand

A book shudders

Under the weight of a flickering
Lamp
The bookends turn
then
Tumble into the
percale
void
