DMC: "Gossipers" by Jone Rush MacCulloch
Library books sit on shelves ,
wait for lights off and begin
hushed voices with each other.
Conversations in the dark :
Whoa, she dogeared my pages.
I felt his tears on THE END.
Forgotten, not been checked out.
A first grader stole a book,
tucked it under her rag coat.
Blue moon shines through the window.
Library books, gossipers,
whispering words without sleep.
