It should be here – here somewhere in the crowd. So small and delicate with it’s plain surface. A small rectangle to be overlooked so easily among the other squares: Rectangles, check rectangles, parallelograms and trapeze.
It’s suppose to be here – right here on the shelf! But others have taken its place. Pushed it from the archive. Where is it? with its special and beautiful exterior – it is fascinating like the other two.
I have it so clearly in my mind, but I don’t see it. Black spots all over – not the one I’m looking for.
The small black dot on the woodlike surface you could look through whenever you have been allowed to look inside. Who really decides who? Why have the others dispelled it from its normal place? Maybe it wasn’t alienated, but someone found it and found it as interesting as I did. Maybe they chose it for the same reason – or maybe another just as reasonable. Who really decides who? The book or me? Or do we even get the chance if the others beat us to it! Hopefully it will be back!
