    The Bookstall
    by Linda Pastan

    Just looking at them
    I grow greedy, as if they were freshly baked loaves
    waiting on their shelves
    to be broken open–that one
    and that–and I make my choice
    in a mood of exalted luck,
    browsing among them
    like a cow in sweetest pasture.

    For life is continuous
    as long as they wait
    to be read–these inked paths
    opening into the future, page
    after page, every book
    its own receding horizon.
    And I hold them, one in each hand,
    a curious ballast weighting me
    here to the earth.

    –Linda Pastan, Carnival Evening
