10 second love story / “Favorites”

thumbtack in map



If I were a town square public library

I would make you the final page

of my favorite book

that I don’t want to read because

I never want the story to end.


If I were a 20th century record store

I would make you the grooves in the vinyl

of my favorite greatest hits album

that I have worn out from

dropping the needle day after day.


If I were an unfolded map of the world

I would make you a thumbtack

and after a careful search

I would stick you into

my favorite place on earth.
