Your lines
look like they could use lotion
a neglect more typical
than not

I found it for five bucks
next to its kin
an encyclopedia angelica
I was similarly weak to

The cover was my mother
in book form
an embelished hand rehashed
da Vinci circa the seventies

It’s gathering dust now
next to the angels
but I’ve read enough
to hold your hand
