the last book readers

it is a sad day when
the last people around who
read books and use libraries
are the homeless
the last people around who still
lost themselves in weather-beaten
paperbacks with yellowed pages
you can buy a copy for
only a penny
and sometimes it’s enough
to get them through
one more day
