piles and circles
we're all like a pile, or a bunch, of books.
just sitting there, hanging out
waiting for someone to pick us up
become interested, intrigued
and begin reading us
learning more about us
and if we're interesting enough,
or somehow touch the persons heart,
they will remember us for a long time after
possibly for the rest of their lives.
and depending on the taste,
we might find ourselves
in entirely different environments.
just as a person may have
the publishing company, century co,
bobbs merril, malden, and the Bible
all on one shelf, likewise, they might have
a jock, a tomboy, a prep, an optimist, a sadist,
a goth, a pessimist, and a ray of sunshine
all in the same circle of friends.
it really just depends.
oh, and one more thing.
we reflect ourselves off of
anything remotely mirror-like.
so we've got to be careful
