The History of This is My Wish for the Future

Posted by William Davies King on Thursday, March 3, 2016.

What is a gift book--but this? Implies a history, suggests a future.

At present, you have to wonder.

A gift bibliolage queries a history, doubts a future.

Moons the past, eclipses the yet-to-come.

I like the way the dated futurism redoes the ersatz Victorian.

And the way the pretty poesy predicates flash gordon.

A mere bagatelle.
