New Books (04/06/21)

There is something to be said
about slipping a knife’s tip through
the sticky tape, hearing that crisp pop
when the seal breaks
fingertips grasping, feeling around for the seam
lifting up on the box’s exterior
revealing the coveted

this month Life of Pi‘s blue and orange cover
faces me, the mysterious façade of
What Comes After peaking out from underneath
with both in my hands it is hard to determine
which should be enjoyed first
one would be my second time
experiencing its language
calling to me because it knows I will be
satisfied. fulfilled.
the other beckoning,
but you have never had me
I should be first

at this later hour, I still have not made a decision
but I think I know which one I will choose
