I Know What I Want

By Rhia

I want a book.
I want a Canadian book that looks at life.
Not a country. Life.
I want a book that does not look at the US.
I want a book written in a personal form, that I can relate to.
I want a book that's not a study, nor an interview, nor a collection of writing by other people.
I want a book that is not a biography of someone else's life.
I want a non-fiction book that I can trust in, and relate to, and love.
I want a book that's objective, yet thinks only of my well-being.
I want a book for all bisexual people who are just as screwed-up as I am.
I want a book written by a teen. Maybe I am that teen.
I want this book, but I can't find it.
Not even in myself.
I want a book that does not exist.
I want a book. My book.
Written for me.
