{ papery obsolescence }

aaron-burden-123584don’t stare at me with millennial disgust

when I pull out my paperback book


non-virtual planner

with vintage tools of pencil and eraser

I relish the rustic fragrance

and the papery glide of

recycled basswood

beneath my fingertips

(and anyway…my battery’s dead.)
