Chapter 22

behind me
fragrant ocean breeze
fluttering vee
against azure sky
as i entered
seeking bound treasures
carelessly
beside Knowledge
or perhaps Career
I chose the wrong text —
Instantly,
Wrenched from the world,
Laid out and footnoted,
According to M.L.A. Style,
In this musty volume:
No longer to breathe;
No longer to laugh;
No longer to love;
Forever to be —
Chapter 22.
