The words in some books

are small shining pieces

resting on the page.

Delays are possible then

as he sorts through

the dazzling nouns,

the polished prepositions.

Sometimes he celebrates 

single sentences

by closing his eyes

and visualizing 

their shining appearance.

His life seems magnificent 

when he finds

these glossy words in a book --

faces flash,

streetlights shine like moons.
