Rubin’s Paper Store

 

Everyday from 8 to 3

You inside the store

of information pressed on pages.


 

Its musty, dark and crowded,

the racks entice

with scenes of Mexico

and lovely furnishings.


 

Slowly and peacefully,

one by one, they come

to escape into your world

 

Selections to locate

on who, what & where

they might be.


Security in the dinginess,

stale coffee smell all around

and your talk of the

gossip floating in town.


 

 

It’s a moment in time

frozen in minds,

hearts, and novels.


 

It is the same scene

moment to moment

day to day

year to year…


 

And then on a Saturday,

the end of the week,

the end of the day,

It vanishes.


 

With your last breath

you close the door

in Rubin’s Paper Store!
