Books Suit Me (Day 438)

books suit me like navy blue
I am told   choosing is simple 

akin to buying this small house
remember when you looked 

inside all those hollow sugar 
Easter eggs   too small or large

too hot or too cold  too close or
too far away   you were afraid 

no one would come to admire 
your lush garden on Sundays 

or read my favorite novel    after 
I’m gone you’ll find it falls open 

to the passage that inspires and
comforts me   like those photos 

of the old you   the fragrance of
libraries   this small hollow house
