"Read" Excerpt:

Read when those bullies descend gawking

When they say you ugly and ordinary and nothing 
taunting and pointing
pressing and edging you
Books will save you
Strap them like a metal vest
Duck and weave
Spit out vocabulary to blunt their insults
Escape through the trap doors of prose
Dangle off the cliff of poetry and hold on
