exchange

How else shall I give breath
to a lifeless pamphlet
but by allowing it to suck dry my soul
the dormant organism must
take all thoughts within my hold

jots
blots
marks
scribes
scrolls
skeletons
patterns
clusters
droves
schools
waves
storms
trails
of text signed inside the pamphlet
I give it life in exchange for mine
