If that page disappeared yesterday,
would you be bothered by the gap in narrative?
The content was mostly very cryptic, subtly psychological,
and self-consciously analytical in nature,
but maybe not essential to your comprehension of the whole.
Was it ever, after all?

The page may happen to be floating to some foreign wind,
also ignorant of your story being told.
But could it really unfold in any chapter other than your own?
Words thrown to the breeze, characters lost to some weird rhyme,
scribbled in a page you may not care to even notice.
An essay on the uninteresting spirit
vanishing, without effort, on the sly.

It is not missed, neither can survive,
as it reckons in the absence of your watchful eyes.
