What stories lie between two bookends?
Bronte, Hugo, Rowling, Keats?
You are what you read.
Sometimes, bookends can be used alone
If there is something else on the other side
Like a wall or a paperweight.
Like the metal blue bookend I used at my desk when teaching
Which held up children’s books, language dictionaries, and lesson plans.
Or a bookend could be a virus
Like MERS or COVID-19
Which bookened five years in the RoK.
