Forgotten what a thrill it is to read.
Yes, that I’d done until I cracked these books.
I hadn’t read in ages, no indeed.
But finally at Hunger Games I looked..
Despite themselves they’ve hooked me very much
and I can’t wait to read it ‘til the end.
A female’s Hero Journey brings a touch
that nothing else quite matches that’s been penned.
The last time that a book hit me this way?
It’d have to be back when I used to read.
To Native Son, Jane Eyre, and Dalloway—
books used to be a part of my whole being.
I’d maybe like to try to read some more.
But somehow reading feels like such a chore.
