Books

I want you to look at my books
because I know you’ll gasp,
and raise an eyebrow at every
single
spine.

I want you to look at my books
because I want to let you in,
inside my head that’s filled
with the words
that I want to say to you.

I want you to look at my books
because it’s the beautiful intrigue,
to read along a person’s collection
and read into them
exactly
the same way.
