Turning


Cover, Contents
Title, Intro.
I'm opening
a new book.
Just before
I turn
the page
I pause
breathe deeply
and linger.

Between the pages
the chapters
the story, the plot
there's a pause
a moment
when the heart 
says Stop.
Fingers pinched
holding the paper
I wait
for the turning.

The first word
of the first paragraph
of the first chapter
will wait.
I can't read it yet.
My fingers know
it's not time
to turn
the page.
