“A Misconception” Poem of the Day (2022)

“A Misconception”

By Ashley O’Hare

I am not smart.

I drown myself in books

not for the education

but for the warm embrace.

Time and reality bend

within the hold

of the fresh print.

Page after page I turn,

feeling my heart rate slow

as the words sink

deep inside my soul.
