What a good book does


A good book does
wonders for
the thinkers' eyes
dialating a fools'
mind
til words strip
their assumed 
overcoats
boasting
layers that rethink
the rethought
every word
every letter
screaming that they
are not who you think
they are
city pigeons
plucked so you,
passerby,
can view their silver skin
and golden blood
desert rocks
turn to lizard eggs
if you look closly
and phrases
kindle meaning
in darkroom trays
words floating off pages
dripping multidementional 
in the darkness
til the paper worlds
grow like mold 
on the papyrus
ancient
modern
colliding in a single
relatable
figure of 
understanding
opening
doors
and windows
and skylights
saying 
come in!
come in!
the world is larger now
