in the library, ancient recall

©2022 Michael Raven

there is no library
with inverse histories
no falling in feathers
while lost in the stacks
i was only lost inside
this splintered head
that began with
a broken kiss

dusting off books
piled in the shadows
it returns returns
and downside
turns upside anew

incantation, reflect, recall
ingrain, carve into
memory for when that
next time returns again
