Progress at the library,
books redundantly make way
for DVDs of movies made
from fragments disassembled.
No more standing in line
for endless variations
of Mrs Greenbaum’s bunions.
Perhaps it’s a crime or even a mystery,
now I can’t find a bloody thing.
I miss Mrs Greenbaum now she’s gone,
but most of all the books.
