The Handout

The reader need not comment

directly on the text

to be aligned with it.


I met you at the bottom

of the university steps

after you

threaded your way

through the crowd

in that academic

labyrinth. Well done

for a man driven blind

by a life of reading.

I thrust my calloused hand out

to you. Your soft touch

pulled me in.
