Take a whiff of joy-in-store,
of silent tomes that sing.
Ride your neurotransmitters
from Boston to Beijing.
Bust the bonds of gravity
and leave the earth behind.
Splatter scenes the eye can’t see
across a canvas mind.
Don’t write off the best in life
as “difficult to hold.”
Wrap your hands around a book,
and watch the world unfold.
