Monday Poem

I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody too?
……………… -Emily Dickenson

The Book of Nobody

The book nobody can read
of words nobody can understand
is set in lines nobody can see
on leaves no one can turn by hand

It tells tales nobody can believe
of worlds nobody ever knew
of things nobody can conceive
of which nobody has a clue

The song nobody can sing
for nobody who will hear
is like the bell nobody rings
for nobody who is here

The nothing everybody fears
the nothing everybody knows
the sum of everybody’s tears
is of nowhere everybody goes
