Toss a pebble in the still pond, and watch 
the spot swell and spread, becoming 
the petals of a sunflower, wide eye 
edged with lashes curling at the tip. 
That’s what happens each time 
you open a book, the world growing 
larger with each page, silent ciphers 
sprouting cities and roads, and finally, 
a Ferris wheel, sending its iron tendrils 
into the air, where you sit, slowly swaying 
in your seat, looking out on the new-made world.
