Living text entity

Picture: Living text entity. The Name of the Rose.


We have to allow
For the possibility that
A book is
A living text entity;
A text-being.

Go into an old library
At midnight
When the full moon
Is shining through the windows.

Be very still
And listen
With your skin.

You can hear
The books
Talking to each other.

But in which language
Do they speak?

And why do they
Go quiet
When you look at them?
Picture: Living text entity. Anglo-Saxon Chi-Rho. Lindisfarne. 8th Century CE.
