the space library

for michelle reale

pablo, walt, t.s. and ezra
all have monster spaces
in history, but do they

have their own librarians?
no, but I do--

and her name is michelle
and she's so human I think
she almost can't take it

but she does--

she calls me buddy
and I giggle like a fruit loop
because that's what

we have built
between us.

like a rocket-
ship built of trust
and pillows

filled with books
and twinkies and milk
a goodnight kiss

so far into the future
we're already enjoying
a kind of afterlife

right here in the soft
sweet and timeless
library in space

we have built
between us.
