4th January 2018

depleted shelves
beads of purity
hanging from threads of silver birch
cold surprise

require assistance
as I remove and recycle.
Will I ever reads Keats again?
or John Donne?
And if I do, isn't it more likely
I'll google the poem I want,
rather than wade through an index?
Oscar Wilde replaced on Kindle
frees up another four inches of shelf
but what of art?
and the martial skills?
Do I need those signed first editions?
