Blank page

Gaze at the page
of the book of the world
any page
they’re all blank
great thick book
the one among them all
plentiful as the sands

gaze at the silent page
the ink is not invisible
but exactly the same color as the page
every word in every language
imagined and unimagined
more plentiful than stars
is written there

wait for the words to emerge
when they do memorize them

meanwhile
memorize the empty page
memorize the gazing
memorize the waiting
