Reading, holding pages,
and turning them
slowly. A mind being built
of soft storage,
hardens.
Hypnotic images flash,
sometimes scroll by
too fast to fathom.
Rustling sounds slip
away, leaving a series
of clicks and beeps.
Eyes spin like old vinyl.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    eyes spin like old vinyl…ha. nice line…
    sometimes things do flash by too fast for use to comprehend
    until we take the time to process them….

    These lines really resonated with me:

    A mind being built
