nobody buying

nobody buying p90_opt.jpg


reality was
still code,
stretching  whispering
evaporating
as if climbing out of
drowning
harder to hold
once you finally
knew how to read it

all words, including title, from page 90 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #82 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #11 for National Poetry Month.
