Took it with me to a space station-themed coffeeshop

The lights are dim in the escape pod

Perhaps to hope requires some dulling

Took it with me to the Rose Reading Room

Past four security checkpoints

Tourists taking photos of a field of bowed heads

Took it with me to the Strand

Inserted a finger into the space where it would go

On the shelves, between two books, under C

The protection of other books felt good

Couldn't help thinking these books are Stranded

Sat at home with it and grinned and winced

Had my cat bless it when I got galley cold feet

Soon the days will be colder and when I get home

from outside I will warm my hands on her
