Late Fees

Late Fees

I know you watch me,
over spectacle rims
near the bridge's end.

You shush me
over index cards
and collected late fees.

I want to tie you up
or hold you down
and scribble poems
on your breasts
in red fountain pen
and let your screams
echo through
the Dewey stacks.

We both know
pain and love
are partners
over time, overdue.

Oh, oh oh Marian, the librarian! Get her by the footbridge, you! OK, I have seen The Music Man too many times. Loved this. Took me back to high school, and another time. Now I just work online. I say Hey! for gutenberg.org! Thanks, Gay

I don't think I've ever known librarians like this one. Maybe that's a good thing. Nice work here.

Nice twist to a quiet and unsuspecting library!

Damn.

I need to start wearing my glasses more often at the library.

All the hushed tones of a library make it an almost taboo place to be ... which fuels some of the best fantasies.
