Margin

by whoneedsaname

Who are you?

Who are you who wrote your Name on my life In thin blue biro

And illustrious, illegible calligraphy?

Cyril

That's your name - The name you wrote below the Title page In the only space it'd Fit

Along with your number Your address The year - 1985

All in case you lost it.

And the precious notes you Kept

- The bracketed words, The stars in the margins The clarifications you scrawled Tight between lines Where no-one could read them

But then, that didn't matter Because no-one would read them;

You knew them by heart, And nobody else would ever see

You wrote it all But I still don't know who you are

And I never will.

I loved this. I used to think about the identity of people whose highlights and scribbling I found in texts 50n years ago in college. You wrote this beautifully and magically transported me back in time. Great job!!!!!
