harsh joy envelopes
frozen city streets in white
friction dented awe
Reading as literature alights the face value blue book,
digging deeper a step word brightens passage hue book.
Coffee steam curling across airy onion skin pages,
eye wrestles with unoffendable stories nook book.
Your rhema word nails Your beloved to Your plan,
running shoes morph into hips-married glue book.
Printing presses connecting people after Babel’s Tower,
painting translatable words from an artists’ construe book.
Society pages don’t contain my name in their pages;
I hear His siren call reading from His foreknew book.
