Papercut Chapter 7
I opened my eyes and I saw nothing but a blank white canvas of where the world should be. I couldn't hear, smell, or even feel anything I almost didn't notice it at first but I was standing on the "ground" however it two was a blank white canvas of nothing. I had also noticed that I wasn't wearing anything; however it was the last thing on my mind. So much was weird and confusing I had no interest on the lack of trivial things like clothing. It seemed that I wasn't breathing, I put my left hand on my chest I couldn't feel my heart beating or my ribcage expanding or contracting. I was wandering if I was dead and if this was heaven or hell. I walked around for what felt like twenty minutes. I never knew how much I would miss "everyday" things like colors, feeling, breathing, stable ground, among other things.
I stopped and began to lie down. After I was relaxed I looked up at the nothing above me. I started to think about how I had done nothing with my life, I lost most of my memories in
Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
