A Man and His Book

He sat in a chair,
Reading his book;
Not giving thought
That he’d turn and look,
And see different things
Flying around
While he and his chair
Stayed flat on the ground.
He wasn’t annoyed
When the pages would flatter.
He heard not the sounds
Of colliding things clatter.
He stuck with his book,
Intrigued by the plot.

The frogs were blirping.

The sun came out
To warm the grass.

To a glossy brass.

The way he’d want them.
His imagination ran
And circled to haunt him.
The character seemed real,
He thought he was there.
It was quite an emotion
When the book took a dare.
And then, he stopped reading,
He felt the heft.
He went inside
