32 into 46

45 orbits
is all it took
to find the edges
of the hidden nook.

Therein, lay a book

…a tome of ancients,
maybe a journal of secrets,
Voynich’s Manuscript,
or Turing’s codeword,
but not this SYNTAX ERROR’s
peek-a-boo placement.

32 minutes into 46,
enter the combination,
cover my eyes,
and throw the switch.

If the nook opens,
then make a wish,

“I wish for happiness!”

Well, life’s a bitch.

Dusty and faded,
cracked, ripped,
and missing pages,
the nook’s
treasure read,

“Complete Instructions
for the First 45 Stages.”

    1. This went to spam for some reason, but, yeah. Each birthday reminds me I have no idea what the hell is going on.
