The Words Have Reached the End

by Amanda Blanchard
(North Carolina)

the words have reached the end
they're falling off the page -
there's nothing left to be said

there's no more room in the books -
the library is bursting

imagination is dead -
our brains are shrinking

every story's been told -
all conceits are conceited -
there's nothing no one's thought of before

but all thoughts are new,
it's the way that it's said -
the life that's breathed in
to words that seem dead
will always inspire
those who have read
something written before
about something written before
