Talia tagged me again a few days ago, and while I didn't quite have time to respond at that precise moment, I did make note of where I was sitting at the time I first became tagged and what book was nearest by, so I couldn't be said to be cheating. Here's the rules of the game:
From World Class Poetry Blog
How to play:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences. ( was a little unclear whether I was to start with sentence 5 or 6, but I doubt that the world will end because of my unclarity.)
5. Tag five people.
My nearest book: Legitimate Dangers, an anthology of poems edited by Michael Dumanis and Cate Marvin
Page 123, lines 5-7, from the poem Subway by Miranda Field:
burns. There is war. There always is. And words
go missing from the messages
that line these walls, signs papered over signs...
So now I have to tag five people. Okay. I tag Jesus, Jennifer, Vince, Neil and Ryan.
