Hard Covers (hidden tales)


sometimes simple

does it best

kickin’ ass of

cluttered rest

if you doubt it

I suggest

check out books

that passed this test.

Not technical

the pages feel

smooth as silk

and twice as real

with covers hard

the dust appeal

is blurb’an’ art

in hand—on heel

its friendly weight

will help remind–

you stories of

a different time

are there

–on hold—

until you find

the tale end

of printed lines

you just can’t top

the tactile sense

of book on knee

and hands-on text

of dog ears free

of fur, but blessed

with shaggy dogs

and felt suspense.

daily prompt: obsolescence
