Headshot of Rebecca Webb

The world feels like a fever dream

The number of days seem endless


Anxious inhales and exhales

Each uneasy breath pouring concrete


April is a wall of stone

I cannot fathom the future


But while darkness looms,

I blindly search for a match


And brick by brick the wall crumbles,

As each page I turn sends me through it


Every book is a new place

Each day a different adventure


I spend Monday in Thailand,

Then Wednesday in India


I sail to the southern kingdom of ice

I soar on the wings of a griffin


My lungs fill with fresh salty air

The smell of paprika tickles my nose


Odysseus’s journey no more,

For the pages have set me free


And the grin that appears,

Sparks a flame of hope
