The love of books
is for children
who glimpse in them

a life to come, but
I have come
to that life and

feel uneasy
with the love of books.
This is my life,

time islanded
in poems of dwindled time.
There is no other world.

  1. Hi Carol,
    I was just introduced to James Logenbach's poetry today through Poetry Daily. I Googled his name and it took me to your blog site.
    So cool! I just love his work.
