The Prompter Room

For Tuesday, June 13, 2017:

 

BOOKS FEED AND CURE AND

CHORTLE AND COLLIDE

 

In all this willful world

of thud and thump and thunder

man’s relevance to books

continues to declare.

 

Books are meat and medicine

and flame and flight and flower,

steel, stitch, and cloud and clout,

and drumbeats in the air.

 

Gwendolyn Brooks, ‘Book Power’
