i wish

for all of my books to be hardback and within an inch of height of one another. they would all be of raw edged paper and smell like old library books. i'll arrange them in my library (my house doesn't have a tv room) in the floor to ceiling rich, dark, cherry wood built in shelves. then, i'll sit in my high backed chair in front of the fireplace--oh yes, there's a fireplace--and lull the hours away sometimes reading silently, but other times being read to while i follow along.

"only the lull i like, the hum of your valved voice"
