out-of-date instructions

it looks like your book
needs updating
time’s a-changin’
so quickly
your tales go stale
before they are told

not that I care—
I write my own script
and contrary to what
your book preaches,
I choose where to land
be it heaven
or hell

special place
in poetry book
where a beautiful piece
talks of silence and secrets
most of all,
where you scribbled
a little note
about us
