John 5:39-40 (Poem)

Nose buried in the wrong scent
He said

The dusts of tomes float as specs
In a shaft of light

The wisened smell of texts
To clearly guide once meant

Or perhaps only to whet?

And those that read them clearest
Most clearly missed ahead

The figure stood before them –
The Author knew them best
