Others Aren't Personal

by Tanya Cora

others aren't personal
are they?
the best of friends
least of all
lending a book & clothes & stuff

                                                     but words make a book
                                                     & a book can
                                                     bring it on

does anyone notice
                                                     that books are sunshine

                                                     they make people too
                                                     don't they?

doubt it (then)
many a time
because
others aren't personal


This poem originally appeared in Canadian Literature #150 (Autumn 2014), Urquhart and Munro. (pg. 43)
