Emily folded the poem neatly
and returned it to its home.
She pushed the twenty-fifth drawer
back into the body of The Cabinet.
There were thousands more pieces to be discovered
but she could hear her brother call her
from the beach.
She breathed in this wondrous find,
this curious silent friend,
and ran out from the cave.
Emily would return in the morning
to read some more,
perhaps she would bring her brother with her.
But as her feet made their tracks
in the soft sand of Castle Beach,
The Cabinet Of Heed was already teleporting
