“Scott Library” by Lucas Carravetta

Loud breathers. Sneezers.
Yeesh! Another self-pleaser.
Guys talk loud.
Girls laugh louder.
Lot’s of readers. Self pleasers. Lucky getters. Two at a time. Sometimes three.
Guys moan soft.
Girls scream softer.
Quieter and quieter.
Fatter is smarter.
Thin is usually referential or instructional.
Lost. Always.
Until hoorah!
Numbered words, alpha digits, dots-dashes.
Hard covers touching soft covers. It’s called equality.
Peeking eyes  = two way mirrors.
You see them but they don’t always see you.
I see you.
Sh! Is the rule.
12 million arguments, but stay quiet.
I like thinkers, not speakers.
Finders, not keepers.
Borrowers, not stealers.
Coughers, not sneezers.
Shooshers, shooshers, shooshers.
Hardwood beds and [two volume] pillows.
Sleepers, sleepers, sleepers.
Learn how to pick locks. Abuse my upkeep, add to my downkeep. 
Shift my weight and leave with something you didn’t come for.
Just don’t pretend like you came to see, me.
