A failed bibliophile

Buy all those books
Stop at every book stand
It is the library of your life.

The library was sacrosanct
Hallowed halls,french windows
Round and round it goes.

It lies in the red bag all day
Flip it open, Slam it shut
Excuse me for taking it for weeks.

The wrist crackles all day
Metallic weight in my hand
Where there used be pen and paper.
