The Golden Rule of the Library

The Golden Rule of the Library

A Poem by Mike Espinosa

I walked quickly through the library.

The back corner,

where a lonely chair and desk sat.

My book creaked open.

The pages ruffled under my fingers.

After several blissful minutes

I heard a scratching.

My eyes twitched, I scanned the room.

Not a soul.

A cricket sat upon my desk.

I smashed it with my book,

wiped its body off the cover,

and continued reading.

You write simply but with wonderful descriptions in your few words. I really enjoyed this piece, and think the rhythm and moment you captured were great. The only thing I would consider changing would be "Not a soul in eyeshot" to "Not a soul in sight", but of course, that is just my opinion. A great piece.

Hrm... Interesting piece. The diction was inticing, but the ending left me wondering. And that wonderment made me re-read it again, and again, and again. What is the Golden Rule? Wonderful piece though! Good job
