The Library Ticket (by me)

This orange passport
Like an envelope, well-addressed
Slotted into her life
Pages fell open

The central spine
Was fraying, tearing
Like an offspring pulling away
Adolescence

A ticket to her own mind
Its secrets locked like a story
Until escape
At the final chapter

I wrote this poem at a poetry writing day (believe it or not) at the Friend's Centre in Brighton, sometime in the early 90's. I was an Adult Literary Skills and an ESOL tutor there for several years. The poem is in memory of my very first library membership: Charleston Library, Lower Kersal, Salford. Sadly, this place is no more. It's where I first read Nancy Drew books in my late primary and then early teenage years. Born 1954.

Om mitt bibliotekAvid reader - fiction and non-fiction.
Hate romance. Love crime.
Love buying secondhand.
Love my public library.

I've given so many books away over the years, either to friends or to charity shops. I don't usually give my non-fiction away now but I haven't listed all the books I use for teaching English. I don't usually list the fiction I read except for those very special books.
Actually, I do now list some fiction as sometimes I forget what I've read of a particular author!
