In The Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh

In the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh
early for a meeting three doors along
i picked up Everyman's Zen Poems and started to read
there's nothing in it
poems with no words, no titles
and there was no cover.

i sat at no table on no chair
even the building wasn't there
let alone the shelves of no books

there was no i there either
and no meeting at no place
three doors down.

i got up after a while
and went to the meeting place.
