The Instructions

Here is a poem written by the narrator protagonist Gurion. He is ten years old and in love with a girl named June. 

The poem is titled I Won't Tell You I'm Not Breaching The Penumbra

While I hide inside a doorway
in C-Hall,
preventing my toes from breaking
an outline,
I reject a fancier string of words
than this one
because when
you touched me on the head,
I didn't get dangerous,
and I don't know if you know penumbra

How can you not love this kid? How can you not love this book?
