Disturbance #145

by

The greatest truth. I'd shrugged, confused.
That's what Farmer said. The greatest truth. I was immediately in the Library.
I closed my eyes., seeing every tiny detail. The eyes of every book stared at me, willing me understanding. Their outlines shimmered as I looked at them, such was their need to impart wisdom.
They spun me to a bookshop. Farmer, Rob and I in hungry sofas, stared at by book spines and titles.
This is perfect, Rob said to us both. For the first time ever I don't feel afraid.
It's what books give you, Farmer said, the greatest truth.

    The blessing of books and this calmness, suggest a way out!
