octet from Powell's

lured for a moment by a new bilingual
Sappho, white cover with papyrus fragment;

Sima Qian needs to wait for another day,
but there’s the Pearl Manuscript edition I

used to own—big snowflakes suspended over
Star Wars books; intercom announces the used

book you were seeking can’t be found
; the woman
absorbed in Lorca who could be you is not
