Library books sit on shelves
Wait for lights off and begin
hushed voices with each other
Conversations in the dark
Whoa, she dogeared my pages.
I felt his tears on THE END.
Forgotten, not been checked out.
A first grader stole a book,
Tucked it under her rag coat.
Blue moon shines through the window.
Library books, gossipers,
Whispering words without sleep.
