I witness stories
from the comfort of my room.
I read and I’m there.

With Romeo and
Juliet. Holden and Scrooge.
Hamlet and Sherlock Holmes, too.

One page I’m with them.
Two pages and then I’m there.
I’m living their lives.

This poem, in the style of three haikus, describes how I feel when I'm reading a book.
