among friends

anne rice is in the corner
penning deity childhood
ignoring her old friends
stephen king and clive barker
who frankly scare me
and mary shelley
into hiding with nietzsche
who confounds us
not unlike aristotle
and his mentor’s mentor
whose method of discourse
presages advil intake
for which I consult the R’s
which are so very large
that I fear they will crush me
because they can’t stay standing
without constant supervision
from william shakespeare
perched in the reference collection
across the group study table

how good to pass the hours
with my friends in the library
