Don't ever tell anybody anything your memories they'll turn in their graves and moan in discontent but ignore their wailing pretend you don't hear recollect their departure that moment when he died when he left when she just went away and push through work on it but don't ever tell anybody anything if you do, you start missing everybody.
written as a homework assignment. we had to take a sentence from a book we're reading and use it as the first line of a poem.
the quote i used [ don't ever tell anybody anything. if you do, you start missing everybody ] is from the best book in the entire world - the catcher in the rye by J. D. Salinger - the best author in the world. it's the very last line of the book and, for those of you who don't understand it, it basically means don't ever trust anyone enough to tell them personal things because they'll only leave in the end and then you'll end up missing them. if you didn't tell them anything in the first place, you wouldn't know to miss them - get it?
everyone should read the book, it's a masterpiece.
oh, and it's called 192 because that's the last page in my copy of the book.
