The runner was in a hurry

as a prayer believed in itself

as the beginning set sails for infinity

and the book put itself on the shelf

Its mysterious plot had been raped by a missing page

that its author had torn to shreds

in a devastating fit of the blues

when his bi-polar wife left the nest
