Wander In

how many others are reading 20140427_153512
this same book as me?
at the same time, even

how many are likely to be on
the same exact page?
reading the same line, perhaps

coming to a pause at a semicolon
simultaneously as I do

and as I think about this
I realize I’ll have to reread this page

starting at the top
or up a few paragraphs,
repeating a few lines of clever dialogue

one character says to the other:
“I haven’t seen you here before.”
“Oh, sure. I wander in from time to time, when I’m lonely.”
