sexy librarian


   when at most the others looked away 
you were the only one left wrapped in 
tweed fingers you read books and shook 
hands with the corners of very 
tall still rooms. 

when at least the others stopped to stare
 you were a vinyl voice who drifted around
 the room creating your own naratives
 and desires.


  hardbound covered soft themed skin
  so delicately complex.

before i was younger seeking to lift up your 
skirt maybe even  take in a little of the 
warm accent of your thigh, that soft slow
 curve of your inner leg.  

 i remember sitting quietly staring at your crossed
 legs wondering when your glasses would drop 
ever so slightly.  

 but of course your were fictionalized,marginalized, 
transposed across the room between the shelves.


 flip to the back page as you walk by and 
 the summary goes something like this.

my librarian lady sits across the way 
 in between hushed lips day by day.

 self literate angel with a finger in her cardex,
 holy in her house with a text full of sex.
