(poetry diary 153) In honor of Suzy Strutner’s  1/17/17 Travel article for the Huffington Post called 

This Hotel With 50,000 Books Is A Literary Lover’s Dream Come True

which is about

The Literary Man hotel in Óbidos, Portugal is home to about 50,000 books and counting, a manager told The Huffington Post. Some titles are available for purchase, and others are reserved for reading only in the historic hotel’s massive lounge, which is pretty much the book lover’s equivalent of a Caribbean island

and which I want to go to right now, here is Erica Jong’s poem “Books.”

BOOKS

Erica Jong

 

Books which are stitched up the center with coarse white thread

Books on the beach with sunglass colored pages

Books about food with pictures of weeping grapefruits

Read rest of poem
