Trying this post again but not in prose because it froze
Stream of consciousness it is and here’s the biz…
literary program eliminates books day by day
gets me so irritated what can I say?
so the experts debate, relate, egos inflate
premise of show is to find the right book so all Canadians can take a good look
at a book that could change Canada…
there’s an end of world kind of tale, an intersexed story,an immigrant fable and two books about indigenous people, as far as I know
I haven’t read these books but heard about them from the show
Day by day, a book is eliminated, gets me frustrated
Timed discussions and debate to get one book off the slate
How can this event be a good thing to inspire the mosaic collection of people that is Canada to run out together and buy the same book and read it so the country changes for the good?
Point taken, televised unfortunately and misunderstood.
Immediately upon arriving I grab whatever has been left out handy to eat and drink as much as I can. Looking around, lights are on in every room but only the soft glowing ones in the silk leaves get my attention. There are no rules right now because she is happy to see us and wants to know about new buildings, beds, Kate and the elevator as well as the stairs. The attack that happened wasn’t my fault but made my eye twitch. I was grabbed by the neck anyway but she was my defender having seen the first strike against me. Once more, watching at the big window for night movements and listening to housekeeping duties, sleeping rough. Finally, our own time together and I can lean on her or move away whenever I like. The threat of attack remains down the hall perched in wicker and wool. She seems to prefer me but my stay is only overnight. Understanding is difficult and we leave again when the night is dark and the lights outside are turned on brightly to help us say goodbye.
