EGO ( poetically)

a book cannot tolerate rivals
to be a temporary best-seller
is a fiction

a book wants faraway bookshelves
prefers that hands caress it
and go through their corners
stories and romances

a book wants a babel of free translations
forget the critic on his shift
and who cares about traditions?

a book dares to love itself

it does not reach for self help

it needs… needs…
one and another
just to be different

a book is always a best-seller
