A Leaf Crying Out

On book pages – long scrawls in black,
with life! Wild and expressive like I’d
never been. I looked at several pages
then thumbed every page of abandon.
Published in 1956 as Macbeth, it was
a yellowed leaf crying out. In 2015,
the thick and thin of marker was
placed. A book within a book recreated
as I had so often wished to be.
