Waterstones Recommendation

You're a hardback book:
the coffee table photography type that
sits awaiting the agreeable eyes 
of someone who likes what is inside.

Can I fall through into your black and white world
and stay there warm until the history books
catch up with me?

Because if I don't I fear I'll forget your face
and if you're ever on a shelf, with a Waterstones
recommendation below, and I fail to notice you
how can I ever learn again?
