Annotations by Krishna Kumar 'Envy'


I read slowly

the grey scribbles

at random interstices

in a book  borrowed from you.


Annotations.


After all these years, are they meaningless?

Just notes

scribbled on  blank spaces?


No.


They are calligraphic Rorschach blots

from the past.

Revealing a you

we didn’t know.


The penciled synonyms:

an  earnestness

to strive for excellence;

the underlined sentences:

what was important to you when.


Has much changed since then?


Are individual histories

margin-jottings

in the book of life

by an anonymous reader?


Is the reader also the author?
