I bought this book at the library sale, not because I wanted to read it so much as I was drawn to this first yellowed page.....
the librarian stamped
under the title....
placed there with great care,
I can't help, but wonder, what thoughts passed, when this jacket was opened....
The words, "LOVE is the drug"
an empty prescription bottle on
a dusty bathroom shelf......
And how hard it was, for even the slightest addict, to reach up and touch it, pull it down from it's ageless safe place,
throw it out.....
