The Bookmark

Published by under poetry

I left a bookmark

On your page

And was surprised

To find

Since my last visit

The plot had shifted


I marked my place

And skipped ahead

A little

Turn of a page or two

But upon my return

All the story lines had tangled


I had put it down

It’s true

I got busy with,

Oh, I’m not sure what, but

I just always expected

I could pick up

In that same place

Where I left off


Couldn’t you

Have found a way

To suspend time and space

Like the bookmark

I had left for you.
