sentenced

picture yourself
as a word
in a sentence that
runs on for miles
one that falls between
before and after

picture the moment
when the reader
spoke you into being
in a phrase of relationship
your whole life
a word made flesh

picture yourself
as a word among words
in the library of love
cataloged in the context
of all that was
is and will be

the sentence
will pass you by
the pages will turn
but fleeting and forgotten
are not synonyms
picture yourself

Peace,
Milton
