An Asterisk

Posted in life, poetry by amoslanka on April 2, 2009

I love to feel the daily turning of the pages,
the sentences unwinding like string,
and when something really happens,
I walk out to the edge of the page
and, always the student,
make an asterisk, a little star, in the margin.

– excerpt from Cliche by Billy Collins

Nick Logie likes Billy Collins because he’s honest. I agree with him there, but I’m sure we both have plenty of additional reasons.
