The Librarian

Barreling into the vault
I lick the gold coins
while chains of silver encircle
my waist

Relishing moments
of bottomless frivolity,
I count the bound paper while
joyfully waving loose currency over my head

Dripping with saliva's warmth,
I marvel at each picture, each word
on the whitened precious jewels
while the signet falls to proclaim
