Hour Thirteen – Biblioklept

She lingres between two shelves

And watches the library staff carefully

She hides behind a book

And quickly dodges out of sight

She sits at a table, pretending to study

She patiently waits for just the right moment,

Then slips a book… or two

Into her bag… or purse, if the book is small enough

She slyly walks toward the door

And when nobody’s looking

She walks out, tightly hanging on to her bounty.

Perhaps, if the library community is lucky enough

The biblioklept will never return
