playing with “book”-ings

~
Books with inbuilt “content”
Afford more than a semblance
Of coming home feel
~
One promising spine in hand
Another sitting eagerly on shelf
Third on order
~
Balancing one in crook
Of elbow while juggling
Java in fists, sundries
~
Mostly extrovert by nature, romancing real
“Life” substantially, books too have provided
Fodder for the introvert lurking inside
~
Alice’s several escape hatches, up sleeves, books have
Put fertile brain thru mental hoops emotional wringers
Before nail biting, fear fraught, poignant photo finishes
~
Abounding, stiff, pompous characters going by the book
Endearing rogues often scorning threats of “getting booked”
Nimble sleuths adroitly sidestepping via red herring “bookings”
~
Smorgasbord of spicy plots, McDreamy* galloping tall dark men
Astride pure bred Arab steeds, answer to numerous fledgling pleads
All these and racy whodunits formed rungs of “growing up” ladder
~
Virtual scenario has drastically made inroads, nay railroaded
Bound books with downloaded virtual bestseller spines and
Even though aging hands love virtual, yet miss holding real books
