Against the wall books made of not books.
A chair exploding in an orgasmic release of pages matches the moans and groans accompanying the film-cum-poetry reading on the other side of the room.
There were book markers and chairs to help us.
This is the first post written away from a computer, by hand, at the
Chairs where you're invited to sit and see what had mattered in these books (what does, what will matter).
A case full of bits formed in books, an ultrasoundimage, a suicide note of sorts, a love note, lottery tix.
Things I found that were marked. In Beowulf (revising and resubmitting now, I swear):
From Thomas Moore, Soulmates:
"Just as imagination is a sign of the soul at work, or even is a sign of the ego doing everything it can, especially through rational understanding and control to keep soul locked away."
This was marked, and I agree.
What I bookmarked: The Way of Living according to Lao Tzu:
Bent and you can strengthen,
Emptied you can hold,
turn you can mend..."
It's akin to a bit from The Art Or War;
"if one cannot be strong, yet cannot be weak, defeat will inevitably follow."
We read so we can bend, bend into each other in the ways we need to curve.
