paper books are, finally,
going to be like vinyl
digital music files
tasty old things
held in the hand
loved in the library
perhaps more precious now,
closer to stone and baked clay
in surviving sun, soak, and seasons
needing only eyes and mind,
to quicken them
kept and cared for
never ever quite forgotten

|and saying something to make it so,||(imperative)|
|is entertaining the notion that it could be so.||(subjunctive)|
Reflects the tripartite experience of the world as it is, the actions we use to change it, and the thoughts that dream the possible worlds.
Or: the outside world, interfaced through our actions, to our minds.
In a world of received perception and directed action, the subjunctive, being as murky as the mind, is the easiest to miss.
