Ode to a Gentleman I Saw in the Bookstore

I'm sorry I startled you.
Your look of guilt made me sad.
I did not judge
(although I was surprised).
Read what you want to read, my friend.
Read cookbooks or kids books;
Read gardening books or philosophy;
Read magazines or self-help books;
Read romance
(which you were)
for the world needs more love and happy endings.
