third lopes of the month no regrets.

I don't like books

I don’t like books
as much
as Mallarmé seems
to have liked them
I’m not a book
and when people say
I really like your books
I wish I could say
like the poet Cesariny
what I’d really like
is for you to like me
books aren’t made
of flesh and blood
and when I feel
like crying
it doesn’t help
to open a book
I need a hug
but thank God
the world isn’t a book
and chance doesn’t exist
still and all I really like
and believe in the Resurrection
of books
and believe that in Heaven
there are libraries
and reading and writing

Sigh. Beautiful as always.

This reminds me I've been meaning to translate some of my favorite German song lyrics into English. I should do that sometime, too.

Hurray. :) And yes, I'd love to read them!
