The Reading


So there will be words
particularly crafted
message encoded or stark naked
sugar-coated or designed to jolt
justified as demand-supplier
and yet, as those who’ve read will tell
there comes a point
when words have been consumed
in volumes immense
and configuration incalculable
that words and lines disappear —
and what remains is essence
that’s dripped to the ‘between’
between line and line,
word and word,
letter and letter.
