Human Dictionary

Search up any name amongst its worn, brittle pages

Forgotten faces fade away into fine dust

Under each definition lies a story of the ages

Books within a book

Layers of life unable to be kept in a single chronicle


The pen is my hand

The sheet lies in front of me

And now I decide

What will define me

Before the ink dries
