Getting Rid of Books, or Days in the History of Silence


Small apartment so many books I know

I won’t read again some I won’t even

read once but I want them in case.

This morning I went through many books

because I probably will never ever

read them because I read them once and wasn’t

glad I did only five in the pile by the door

five out of three hundred and ten books

book on top has a good title

Days in the History of Silence

maybe I shouldn’t give it away.
