To Lend a Book

To lend a book
is to lend a daydream
to share a world
to imagine what another would like to think about
--what might enrich,
or satisfy.

To lend a book
is an act of trust
that foremost in the mind 
is the notion that the relationship with said book is temporary.
--you may get it back,
might not.

To lend a book
is a risky thing;
Books absorb into minds 
and into shelves.
