i closed the book

I’m reading can’t and won’t stories by Lydia Davis.

Everything was going great
I was turning the pages with ease
enjoying every mundane word
this is significant to point out since
it’s difficult for me to read
I’m dyslexic
It’s hard for me to focus
That’s why I like short and to the point.

Like I said
everything was going great until
I came upon a story that was
four and half pages long

I panicked

Wasn’t sure if I was ready to take it on

Overwhelmed

I jammed the marker in the narrow valley of the pages and
closed the book.
