— for DM
Take every word
you cannot write — stare them
into the page. Take the page
to the tall mound above the pond.
Lift the stone I left there.
Lay the page on the book of truths,
and replace the rock. When it rains,
when the inks run down,
when the frogs breed, and the eggs
swell, the pond will bloom
with algae — with lilies.
