"Hello Book!"

Hello Book!
by N. M. Bodecker

Hello Book!
What are you up to?
Keeping yourself to yourself,
shut in between your covers,
a prisoner high on a shelf.
Come in book!
What is your story?
Haven't you ever been read?
Did you think
I would just pass by you
and pick me a comic instead?
No way book!
I'm your reader
I open you up,
set you free.
Listen, I know a secret!
Will you share your secrets with me?
