A BLANK BOOK

Make of this what you will or more probably won't -- it's a little nothing of instant sweetness about Bougainvillea who works in a second-hand store except for its new books (she loves to read) who always smiles at everyone who comes in the shop. It's her imprimatur -- like the Mona Lisa's. You'll find out why and also why an elderly woman asks her for a blank book, but only after she talks to her friend Fritillaria and a mad pundit called Hyssop and after she decides she wants ""life to touch"" her and undergoes more and more enervating inner experiences (indeed at one point she's lying on the floor like a Zen vegetable). Perhaps there's something to be said for that blank book, unless you incline toward the tres fey.
