I have to get rid of things

So many books in boxes

Don’t worry, I’ve got some

Hundreds still, around

 

If they should take in mold

And mildew, well, they will

Though I’ve taken to

Dry atmospheres as well

 

Too many than I’ll read

They’ll live in piles, waiting

For the ones who will come

After—eager or indifferent
