A Favorite Book

My cover is tattered
My binding has been re-glued a few times
Half of page eighty-seven is on the floor across the room
She flips through chapter five again
I’m the subject of her most recent book report
She must be eating a snack
I feel the tiny crumbs falling, getting stuck between pages
It’s okay because I know I am loved
I am always by her bedside
