Hesitate not to penetrate
by Lynne RBC
like a wide-eyed kid
who eternally flips the pages.
For surely he can never unravel
the reason of the little prince
nor untangle the mystery of jack who rips
with just a chip on the sealed corners of this book.
Neither can you reckon my soul
with only this body to look.
The core can't be that far
just beneath this scar.
