a case of bookcase lust

Received a fine oaken bookcase, via a relative, and placed it next to the computer where it serves as both distraction and a constant prompt of wonder. The books look fiercely handsome in the new case, their hues glowing in the diffuse light. The titles glisten with poetry:
el beisbol
Baghdad without a map
in Patagonia
Europe on a Saturday night
ciao, America!
passage to Juneau
the spears of twilight
notes from a small island
amazon journal
stranger in the forest
how I worked my way around the world
the water in between
