Don’t Bother Me… I’m Reading

Actually I’m not reading. I should be cleaning for the company arriving on Tuesday, but I’m putting that off to write. Friday I spent two hours on one word! Darn strict double dactyl rules. But I finally found a six syllable word that worked well for the poem. Both girls had early release only the second week of school! When Gretchen came home, she was all excited. One of her teachers wants to borrow Red Rising when she is finished. Umm…yeah, You do know Mom bought that book so she could read it. I haven’t even cracked open the cover yet and now there is a line.

I know both my girls are book dealers, but Rachael keeps it to her friends. Gretchen seems to be expanding her business to include adults. Oh well, in the meantime I have poetry to read and write.  And this pesky housework to finish. By the way everyone should pick up this book.

Wonder when I’ll read
Red Rising exciting ride
I must stand in line

Need a reading fix
Crowd grows around book dealer
Dispensing knowledge
