NaPoWriMo2016 #23 ~ LIBRARY


The smell
that's the first thing
it's the aroma of eternity
and every love and hate within

The visual
every size
the thick and thin of every era
lined up and cross-referenced

The texture
traveling through the ages
by the stroking of different makes

The lives
of all that were, are, and imagined
flipping through my fingers

and I bring it all home
to visit with me
and return it
to visit with you

We time-travel together
companions that will never meet
