Finding Space

Writing each new page
Each new chapter
Each word and paragraph
I look ahead
Walking through the bookstore
Eying the bookshelves
Now crammed with recent titles
New fiction
Mysteries and love stories
Like mine
I say a prayer
Whisper incantations
And work some Voodoo
I conjure up some space
Imagine this novel sliding in
Right where it belongs
