This book is a bumper sticker. It says Kill Your

This is a book about a man who leans forward as he
walks and lowers his head so his beard brushes against his chest.
You can hear him purring from within like a cat. Turn the
page. Keep turning. See?
This book is pungent like green onions I pull from the garden
in spring before dinner, the dirt that clings to them rinsed away
in the sink, white snaky roots wriggling down from the head sliced

This book, because it's the color of nightfall, which is the color
of a bruise, reminds me of the bovine word "buttocks," which I
first saw in a book filled with Holsteins, Guernseys and Black Angus,
herds of them roaming in grassy plots between the lines
This book taught me to hypnotize myself. It never worked. The whole
story is enough to make a grown man cry. I'm a grown
man now, and I cry sometimes when I read books.
This book made me cry when I read it years ago, and
I can still see myself stretched across the bed, unwilling to put
it down. It's a silly, sentimental book, and it was a good

man who reads books to a woman. He read to her in
bed, much as I read to my wife some nights. When I
wonder why she loves me, I think this is why.
