Your Bold Typeface Lips



When I pick up your hardcover

Making sure the dust cover is intact

I gently open the pages

Discovering the inside of you

Smelling the new and freshly bound

Turning each page carefully, not to bend

As I caress the spine in my arms

I plant a kiss on your sexy end paper

Plant another on your bold typeface lips

I say I love you in Garamond font

And promise that I will never read

Or see that softcover edition again.
