Poems of old
Thoughtful in return for thought provoking
Written words for the written word
An author’s blacked out signature in a signed edition
A value of forty cents.
A new inscription, new meaning, and new value.
A mark of friendship
Uncomfortable as unmasked feelings are to those who should be the least concerned
For others there is acceptance of a new found identity
That prompts a return to exploration after a soul laid bare
What greater gift?
