Dead Trees

books

can’t see a Hall of Fame
mirror with my screen
shot face reflected ‘tho
displaced right to left

can see a Lycos search
making much more sense
than a line in someone’s
illusory bibliography

hey, so it takes 27
books nobody read
to rate dusty space
in said pantheon

it means –
whichever way ingested
a whole lot of
dead trees
