Shhh

Shhh, quiet
There, right there
In the thick of it
And alive he is

Shouldering what was
Seducing what is
And christening what one day may be

Slices of paper
Trickling from books
Told, taken, trodden
Laced with dust
Edged with mildew
And dollops of white leaf gold

There, right there
Shhh
Laden as it were
With words and worlds and wild wisdom

His eyes are shoot asteroids, birthing stars
And surfing black pitching holes
Shhh
Don’t blink

Shhh
