Around the corner
behind the door
of the old house
no witness, no sound
mold creeping over
its crusty front cover,

the book lay.

Within,
it contained
images grasping at meaning
inside hopes and dreams.

Discovering form’s impermanence,
attempted to capture its essence.

Deluding
with visions
of immortality.

Now
these words,
Food for the worms.
