Shhhhh, I’m Reading (Hour Twenty-Four)

Shhhhh, I’m reading.

There’s a world playing out in my mind,

While I sit stone-still, staring at arrangements of letters,

That give birth to whole lifetimes.

You can talk and laugh and walk around,

But please, please keep it down.

  1. Shyami – you’ve perfectly captured the stultifying sense of exhaustion that hits at the end of the marathon! I’m actually wincing as I read this as it takes me back to our mutual experiences last week. Love this!
