between one page and the next
the paper holds beloved poems,
lines of ancient mouldering text.
Then amongst the verses glance,
quickly check with what you know
you will find the meanings dance,
see how nuances come and go.
How the poems lead the way,
simply lay the meanings bare
these words leading me astray -
words that people twist with care;
Subvert truths that I once knew -
Poetry alone holds true.
