Margin - Day 6 of the Tiny Autumn Poetry Challenge



You think you see me
My cover shiny

Daring you to
Devour my story

But when you lean in
You will see the scribbly bits
In the margins
The wrinkles and smudges
Where I drank too much coffee
And spilled
My soul
Onto the page

It’s too late now
You know
To slide me back onto the shelf
As if we’d never met
