Day 16 Prompt: “Grab the closest book. Go to page 29. Write down 10 words that catch your eye. Use 7 of words in a poem.”
10 words from page 29 of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami:

powers forward with a singular goal.

Where does the other half go?
The unspent time.
without pause or gap.
The sea is too busy to notice –
lost in the fold
