Poetry for Book Lovers

I love this poem, which starts with:

"Let's meet tonight between the covers
to thumb each other's spines
like true book lovers"

and goes on from there. Implying is much sexier than saying. Here's another poem [Link updated 09/18/2003 --Chad Lundgren] that subtly implies using the whole "food is love" idea by the same author, Jenny Lewis.

And last but certainly not least, enjoy some of Theodore Roethke's insanely great poetry.

movies can also go that way-- from a favorite, the big sleep:

VIVIAN : I'm very grateful to you, Mr. Marlowe. I'm very glad it's all over. Tell me, uh, what do you usually do when you're not working?
MARLOWE : Mm. Play the horses, fool around.

VIVIAN : Well, speaking of horses, I like to play them myself. But I'd like to see them work out a little first to see if they are front runners or come from behind, find out what's their whole card is, what makes them run.
MARLOWE : Find out mine?
VIVIAN : I think so.
MARLOWE : Go ahead.
VIVIAN : I'd say you don't like to be rated. You'd like to get out in front, open up a lead, take a little breather in the backstretch and, and come home free.
MARLOWE : You don't like to be rated yourself.
VIVIAN : I haven't met anyone yet who could do it. Any suggestions?
MARLOWE : Well, I can't tell till I've seen you over distance of ground. You got a touch of class but...I don't know how, how far you can go?
VIVIAN : That depends on who's on the saddle. Marlowe, I like the way you work. In case you don't know, you're doing all right.
