“Books are uniquely portable magic.” Stephen King

Being Shelfish 

He was completely devoted,
ever the blind doting partner,
long held.

His love utterly unquestioned,
her many wishes his desire,
so fete.

Summer disposition so clear,
holiday lovers in a rash,

Sneaking beyond all the confines,
cigarettes and liquor hidden,

Looking out for the prying elders,
those green lemon suckers defiled,
by love.

His hands wandered her ample scape,
her body given to his touch,
so played.

She loved this game above all else,
the same every Thursday reading,

She loved those torrid romance books,
her florid face library bid,
