With a What?
Loading Mercury with a Pitchfork
arrived last week,
poems by beat author, poet
A used book,
once on a shelf,
of the Ann Arbor Public Library.
November 1, 1976
stamped inside the back cover
on the card pocket.
Today is November 6, 2004.
I missed the feel and smell
of a new book
by just 28 years,
remarkably the poems are still fresh.
