a bookmark in a bible

for many years it's been on the same page
in the same thrift store on the same shelf
I've seen it every time I visit and I wonder
if I'd be invading the privacy of the original
reader if I peeked to see what they marked
so many years ago and I think they may still
be alive and I could call them up - we could
discuss their choices and they could ask me
questions I don't want to hear and discuss
my choices and I know bookmarks in bibles
are really love notes between the reader
and their creator. And I move on to see if
any clothing my size has come in this week.
