torn

i'm not sure 
how many hours
i have spent repairing books.
i have at least one
repair session a week.


i used to try to
keep the nicer ones
out of reach,
but then decided,
what good is a book
if it's not getting any use?

so they get worn and torn,
ripped and abused,
then taped and repaired.
but that love of books
i could never squelch. . .
