Reading List

Consuming science fiction as a teen,
continuing till I was 35,
I swallowed Asimov and I was keen
on Heinlein, Dick, and classic H.G. Wells,
LeGuin of course, and Herbert’s thirsty scene.
But latterly I’ve turned to history.
Rereading Austen makes me feel serene.
An optimist who managed to survive,
the past is my anxiety vaccine.

(Magic 9)
