Nearest Book

alphawolfguide tagged me with the Nearest Book meme

Here are your rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences here.
5. Put the meme and answer in your journal, tag five people and the madness continues.

Nearest book: Letters to the World: Poems from the Wom-Po LISTSERV, a poetry anthology I'm in. This is from "Romanian Village" by Ana Doina:

Maybe a peasant
or a shepherd like us. No grades, no insignias,
nothing memorable, heroic or great about him
was found in the mud near the corpse.
So they dug a grave

at the edge of the forest, in the small cemetery,
in the last row.

The five people I want to annoy: morgan_x, kate_schaefer, vylar_kaftan, tinaconnolly, davidjwilliams.

Kind of a random assortment of friends to bother, but all people I'm curious about what they might be reading.
