“Carry On Reading” – Makati, 06 May 2016

book
in hand,
cool drink
within reach
as the
day
winds down
to a
close.

flipping pages
to and
fro;
skipping sections
picking out
passages
to tattoo
onto one’s
mind;
living a
double life:
a foot
in the
mundane,
the other
in a
fantasy.

sweet escape
beckons
and i
grab hold
and fly
and swim
and run
headlong
into the
pages –
losing myself
among the
words
and finding
myself
once more.
