The Book


Some tell me it's a book
of stories
contradictory
to each other.
A hundred fables
thrown into a volume,
much like any other book
with the same purpose.

Some let it set
collecting dust
on a table top
displayed,
so others might think
it is often read.

Some never leaf through
the pages
or sing one song
within.
They who who have no guide,
who say they don't need
crutches.

Some open the book
often
and see each passage
as an act of love.
They
are the wheat,
who acknowledge their need
for contradiction.
