You are a poetry book reclining on my couch
and I want to turn your legs like pages
fold myself into you
the way I dog-ear favourite passages
to re-read and re-visit in the morning.
You could be a sexy bestseller curled up
in my bed.
But I want to guard you from review
and keep you obscure
from publishers and popular culture -
check you out as unavailable in libraries
to keep you as my
literary secret
and lie with you myself.
We'll clothe each other in dust covers
only to undress
over lazy cups of coffee in Sunday hours
our own personal bookclub
of bibliophilic eroticism.
(We'll slide our bookmarks in each other
and collaborate on the shelf).  
I wrote this in my lecture today (veryyyy boring). A tongue-in-cheek look at people who love books and bond over them. Or alternatively, people who fall in love with literature characters.

It should hae a sequel: "You Papercut Heart: When Your Favourite Character Gets With Someone Else" or something haha

This made me chuckle, "collaborate on the shelf."
