the secondhand book

the secondhand book

butt end of this secondhand book
smelling like a stately home
somnambulant deep in dust 
behind the purple keep-back rope 
the pages turn the light minded
like the crystal chandelier 
but a guide book it is not
never will it sleep again
lost upon a shelf in time
for it is mine
