Cadeau

November 9, 2010

Sitting in the Lane Reading Room at a large oak desk, the table lamp’s incandescent light cuts through the light of day’s end wrapping around the room. Someone is whistling downstairs. Dictionnaire culturel en langue française sous la direction d’Alain Rey spills across four volumes on a shelf to my left. I type the date of the play’s first performance in Paris: November 9, 1668. You cross my path again.
