    dotsJohn 2: Booksdots
    -------------------------------------------


    John fled the city eyes
    and took refuge in libraries
    (books smelling the same
    no matter where you are).

    Sequestered in dim-lit corners,
    he pressed his face against spines
    and dug fingernails into old leather.

    Jane, he whispered,
    Oh God--Jane,
    they still smell like you.

      So John's long dead girlfriend Jane was either an avid book reader or a librarian. After he lost her, his whole world fell apart and he became a transient, a roamer. No matter where he went, though, he could not escape the memory of Jane.

    These three poems you have written are quite interesting. You should write some more. I like them very much. Then again, I always like your poetry.

    Jane, Jane, Jane.
