Chapters

 

I went to Chapters
today
I always go to Chapters
today
sometimes I am alone
sometimes I am not
alone
always I go knowing
I will not go buy a book
maybe

 

but in Chapters
today
I picked up something lighter than air
and bought it
to take home and
make part of my world
I picked it up
because it was lighter than air
but the laugh that it gave me
was heavier than life
and I need that

 

Picked up “Helium” by Rudy Francisco
and didn’t put it back down
“Welcome” holds the line with the laugh
