Composure

She lays her head on the page and

the cool hard book presses her

cheek into her

teeth,

Impressing the words upon her mouth and vocalizing itself,

in a perception of,

taste.

 

The paper sopping wet with spit,

pulped,

yet still real and composed,

the acrid taste of another’s thoughts

spat out from her lips.
