If I Were A Book – AKOREDE ASUNNI

If I were a book
I would be that hard cover
Sitting a little out of reach
Somewhere to the left of the shelf
Absent of a fancy illustration
Of a stud holding a damsel
To his rippling chest
As if his heartbeat were a secret
she needed to hear

My name will be etched in plain gold
Lettering across my spine
There will be no writing
At the back, no clues or hints
To let you know to expect
Unicorns or submarines
Or unicorns in submarines
Wearing purple hats and playing
Chess and dissecting the meaning of life
Or a love story so sweet and sticky
You could pour it on your pancakes

I would be fat and daunting
Written in Calibri size 10 on recycled paper
And the reader would have to squint
And hold me up to the light
To make out the wording on my pages

And my story wouldn’t be sequential
It would start with a small letter I
And the only punctuation
Would be the ones that were necessary

And there will be no neat
Tying up of plots at the end
Where all the answers are dug up
And aired and marveled at.

The tale will simply
Drop off the last page and continue
In the reader’s imagination
