The source of footnotes by my bed

I always have a book
on my bedside table.
The same book,
read over and over again,
or just lying there
as a tacit reminder
that there is more to life
than life. And some say,
“One book is all you need,”
although I am pretty sure
they mean a completely
different volume.
After all, I do not live
in a roadside motel.
