                                                      getting rid
                                                      of old books

                                I had kept
                or am reading now
                                which seemed
                                to offer
                                a find

                                but don’t
                                or didn’t
                c’mon now
                                either they’ve got it
                                or supply it
                or they don’t

                if I need to evolve
                                before I crack them
                then I need to evolve
                                rather than hang on to them

                blocked on my shelf

reading wormhole: all the while / the flagpole rope / occasionally flaps / the breeze
settling wormhole: a maturation
