A Library That Once Had Books

Austerity has demeaned reading and the press ignores its irony. Cuneiform known only as roasties. The mother-in-law has three overdues for return, though like her altered circumstance the future is changed. This government, asked to deconstruct provision, had confused its wording. When they had been destroyed by burning there was a catalyst for revolution. Page turning as the flap of wings or ripples on a stream when metaphor was once understood. An ISBN of dissolution. In that clichéd silence, no one heard heavy footsteps and moronic justifications. Ex-librīs as a prefix of mutability.
