pages in life
by Maggie Yang
i find myself wandering
in these endless shelves of time,
of syntheses, phrases, flexuous pieces of history, of
aromas of realms jammed between pages,
leaking and yellowed age, carrying merely
just sinuous lines
syllables of letters ricochet off wood, encase
these pages in swirls of time, trapped
between fibres that preserve
craft a new world, delve in each turn
the strange wistfulness
of used bookstores
Maggie Yang loves reading and writing poetry and dreams of visiting every museum and historical site in the world. She is particularly intrigued by the intersections of creative writing with different forms of visual art. You can find her admiring the beauty in nature or competing in ultimate frisbee in Canada.
