Books about stitching and books
about magicians and

and shape-shifting and war,
And chocolate.
And seven about heaven
and artists and love, and

and birth and Prague,
Budapest, and

And my children are asleep without me but I trust
they read books about trains and hedges and ducks, and
I don't know what will cross my path tomorrow.
Books about maps, or books about judges, or
books marked by fingertips, erasers, smudges.
