Bookish temptation

Do your books ever call out to you? Well, I recently bought some books at the wrong time, just before a period of exams. The little temptresses would not leave me alone.


This is what happened:


My books are winking at me
baring their supple covers, saying,
 “place your hands along my spine
stroke my elegant, smooth, cover
feel the weight of my ample pages
pull apart my covers 
and admire my naked pages
plunge yourself
into my depths
lose yourself in otherworldly pleasure
read me
