Bedside Table

Stevenson, Kipling, Baudelaire
rest upon the nightstand where
they relate their worlds to me
from long dead eyes, through words
still see.

And their flesh in leather bound
though silent save each leaf’s sound
is warm as life and breathes new born
from yellowed pages, cracked and worn.
