A Reading Country

To dive back into a book
To enter another's world
After only having read Facebook for so long
To interface with a familiarly alien reality
To feel the weight in my hand
Instead of  burned into my eyes
To rediscover the joy of reading
To reconnect with the tradition
Of aeons of thinkers, dreamers and writers

If we ever lose this
For Tweets and videos and kewl pwning n00bs
We will be lost forever
In a country with no past
And no future
