There’s a New Bookstore in Town

Posted on Jan 19, 2014

There’s a new bookstore in town

sells poetry and fiction and not much else

I stopped in and ran in to an acquaintance

working there alone.

I walked here, I told him,

I live on the other side of the highway.

He nodded in a sympathetic way,

recommended  a book to buy,

invited me to a reading.

I thanked him and paid

and walked home.

Not much of a business model,

but not a bad find, either,

I thought,

this new place of rest.
