Birthday Books

It is an odd sort of way
of saying happy birthday –
and I admit not my idea

but fitting in with a son whose
innovative sense of intrigue
means casual, seems cavalier

has me writing instructions
to where you’ll find your two
brand new birthday books

Stieg Larsson’s posthumously
published “Girl Who Played With Fire”
& “Girl With Dragon Tattoo”

are unwrapped on the shelf
above the computer
waiting for 1st April

Happy Birthday Frida dear
