Let the Stack Grow

        The bibliophile is, after all,
         like a sultan or khan
         who has countless wives already
         but another two or three
         are always irresistible.
                 Jacques Bonnet

My book bag bulges
with yet another book
I can't resist the short
synopsis on the inside flap
or a comely cover
How can I leave the next
in a series, the first in a new
series, the debut novel of
someone who reviewers dub
as a writer worthy of my attention
I can't walk past the selection
of non-fiction without selecting
something edifying or spiritual,
or even a book detailing how
to keep everything neat.
I love to sit in front of my pile--
yet there's another  book
I just read about...
