If only there were books.
We could look through the pages
of the posterity of life.

If only there were pages.
Paragraphs
sentences
the punctuation
that sets
Life.

That creates,
records,
sentimentalises.
ties –
this life…

The typeface setting the tone
(like class).
Recognising UPPERS
and lowers
(and downers).
Realigning the text – left or right
And saving the
widows.

All designed – laid out.
Lay out. Layed out.
Checking the script. The content.
All smart [unanimously (un) abridged].

If only there were books.
We could learn uniformly.
Tie the lies of lives
and believe what we read
(believe what we read).
Uniformly.

(but we all know)
books burn…
(or we burn books)
[(but then we are lost). Or not].

If only tears were pages.
What a book I would write.
