a short poem about a woman who works in a used bookstore
She unlocks the door
and enters a new world
a world of possibility.
The scent of old books
gives customary greeting.
Here she is in her own.
The magic begins as she looks around,
so many portals on these old shelves
ready to take her anywhere
her imagination will allow.
She bides her time lost
in one book or another
as customers come in, browse,
buy, and leave the store.
Her day, a whirlwind of adventure
a haunting of horror,
a whimsy of fantasy.
Where wild westerns, and saucy romance,
and futuristic foretellings
envelop her attention.
                   This is her home away from home.
