This work is a short discussion on ‘the bookstore’. It is a place that holds only two things, the name of my bookstore. These things fill our world(s): holding, storing, distorting, illuminating our vision(s). This is universal, these things are murky and limpid, they are translated to and from every language, (but only a few are heard here), they are read and heard, understood or not, complete and nascent, grand and humble, desperate to be touched and to touch.
