I really just want to buy a copy of “Where the Sidewalk Ends”


and cut out and frame my favorite poems and plaster them all over my house.

I realize that is like the highest form of blasphemy to cut up a book. But I love Shel Silverstein and keeping his beautiful work on a bookshelf to be enjoyed every now and then feels more blasphemous.

You should turn your camera on the pages and plaster those on your walls
