Page 82?

Maybe I should have grabbed a different book.
Something without an eighty-one-and-a-half page introduction.
Page 82 was empty.
I should have gotten it 
right then,
right there.
Page 83 had 
only one sentence,
in verse. 
So I read the third line.
It said

(No death, no birth,

Just like that.

The third full sentence,
on page 84,
which was line 2
of the second verse,
said

What moves between them?

What indeed?
Or who?

Just me
        moving still.
Just words.
