Book Club at the Home

a monosyllabic six by M.J. Iuppa

They are old and walk with canes to find their chairs in the room. They know they have been here before. No one knows who picks the books they read. They say it’s not up to them. They read all the time, but can’t think of the plot, or who did what to whom. They say that’s life, then put it out of their minds.


M.J. Iuppa is the Writer-in-Residence and Director of the Arts Minor program at St. John Fisher College.
