Of Substance


What is this on the paper I read?

Ancient papyrus was crafted from reed

Scrolls from Qumran’s wadi from vellum were made

Later old rags processed and flatly laid

Wood pulp next seemed the thing to write on

Substance, not mere pixels – easily gone

  1. Yes, substance. Love this. I think one of my favorite things is the use of “read” and “reed.” I love it when an almost rhyme/soundbump joins the party.
