Reams

Books read,
Studied, written in;
Books gathering dust,
Pages yellowing,
Seams cracking;
Books missing chapters,
Covers,
The mark;
Books that teach,
Blaspheme,
Praise,
Lie;
Books forgotten in
Basement-boxes,
Attic-winds, and
School-cupboards;
Books that don't lie;
Books rotting in
Archives.

Books like
People who age
Slowly.
