sounds vibratory vibrato in here
And beep-beep checkouts, beep books back
into swish-step steps, hefting out a hunch.
Heavily leafed library loot, thuds thick,
trapped to: tense training fingers tapping terse,
ceilings peeling crumbling crumbles,
neat narrow shelves stacking stymied substance.
Squatted squares: show corner condensation,
compliment azure noon who complements
churning cherry cadmium
trees turning twists on tanning trunks of fall.
Fasting fast, fearing fall, waiting winter,
homeless home in haphazard halls and holes,
cultured cubbies, cuddle contact
with cryptic calligraphy, crafty codes.
Cry mute messages, mumble mum mandates:
hunger hungers heavy here! Scratch for scraps,
to find fast feasts for freedom feats,
and found forbidden facts in false files,
lengthened lapses of literary lace.
