Fatter Books

I recommended Franny and Zooey as an antidote
to romance. I’ve read much fatter books than this

she said, holding it toward the light, as one may
a dead moth. Fascinated by its delicate exterior

longing to study its structure; to see how it worked.

Alas its intricate nature and flimsy allure
fluttered away, lost in the vacant air of conversation.
