I have this little indulgent thing that I do
whenever we take the boys to the bookstore.
While they rummage through the children's section,
I scamper off to the Fiction area
and locate exactly where my novel
will one day be lined up on the shelf.
Right there, between Herman Hicks and Robert Hicks.
That's my spot.
Then I linger there and day dream about
books deals, tours, what actors would play who
when it's made into a movie.
I dream big, y'all.
Look out world,
I'm coming for you!
