One Poem from Sara Blanton
become a librarian
The idea is to have
a simple existence.
Sit, stamp, and slide
the books across the
Wear thick glasses
with black frames.
The kind that make a girl
It's like lather, rinse, repeat.
Sit, stamp, slide.
If you can master these three steps,
you'll be on your way.
You will need one cat
for your one bedroom apartment.
Lean Cuisine meals and lots of tea.
Librarians do not drink coffee.
At least, you can be surrounded
by endless aisles and carts
filled with novels,
magazines and thick reference books.
Work on your crocheting skills.
Work on your half grin.
A librarian can never show her teeth.
