Illusion

“…put your hand on the knob of the door to your room. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. What’s that noise you hear? Could it be your books reading themselves to one another?” Frances O’Roark Dowell, Falling In

One of Susan Hoerth’s altered books

They all seem so real, at least to me,
all the characters in my books.
Jane Eyre, Edmund Dantes, Jay Gatsby,
They all seem so real, at least to me.
Heathcliff, the Dodger, Moll Flanders, Quee-
queg, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Pan, Hook
They all seem so real, at least to me,
all the characters in my books.

Another altered book by Susan Hoerth. Wonderful, even if one can’t read it any more.

Prompted by Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides, Illusion, and by a friend who knew I would LOVE that quote. ❤
