This book was never left in the lurch.
This book never rushed to print or spilled the ink or spoke
its mind or ate its words.
This book never had a screw loose, never got down to brass

This book never upset the apple cart, killed the fatted calf, counted

foot down, never promised the moon, never lost its marbles, never high-tailed
And until right this moment, page one, this book never lived.
