Bookends

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.
