by Luke Pohjala
The arrow in the
Amazon logo thats on the box that you
ripped open in excitement of reading a book all
your friends tell you have to read.
Your back as you

eyebrows after reading a passage involving
The path of the

The bags under
your eyes after losing so much sleep because youve
started to become a little paranoid in your own
The claws you

cables of the suspension bridge that you want to

of your friends that didnt get the book.
The big smile on
your face as you hand the book to a friend
telling them, Youre going to love it.
One of the best books Ive ever read.
