    Some people shelve their books in alphabetical order, or by subject, or author, or even by size and color. Marion’s were grouped by from which friend she’d “borrowed” them.

    /// The librarian made a deposit

    to the “special” books stored in a closet.

    When they’re written by hacks

    they’re removed from the stacks,

    like this Calculus/Porno composite.

    /// Later on a man, Wally, implored her,

    “Let me check it out on special order.”

    The book, “No Limits Math,”

    (by a known psychopath)

    never came back from Wally, a hoarder.

    Almost two years into the pandemic and she’s watched everything Netflix has to offer twice. She’s finally deciding to be a reader.

    She rabidly rifles the stacks

    For the best “literary snacks”

    She must leave on the chair

    (It had better be there !)

    Before the damn dog attacks..

    Lucrezia Borgia got into panic

    And took a quick look

    For her latest cookbook

    “Order” is not her strong suit.

    She’s not stupid- but she’s not quite astute.

    What she knows of Dewey Decimal

    Is infinitesimal

    But (seen from behind) she IS cute …

    One wonders what prompted an artist to invest time and materials into depicting the backside of a rather messy / disorganized woman? Just practice? His wife?

    The closet was filled to the brim

    With tripe that was left there by him..

    Tis the stuff that he read

    Is the reason he’s dead..

    And their cruise – where she’d found he can’t swim..///

    She recalls how they stood on the deck

    And she gave him a parting peck

    Then she caused him to sail

    Right over the rail

    (The fall must have broken his neck).///

    When the ship they were on reached its port

    She spent two weeks in a resort

    Two weeks in the sun..

    Only when she was done

    Did she file a police report…///

    Somewhere in the ocean he’s lost in

    While she has returned to Boston

    Where the Symphony rules,

    And there’s quality schools ( Harvard ! M.I. T. !!)

    And her closet is filled with Jane Austen…

    I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 4 works by this artist have been used here.

    /// I composed one of these Christmas Eve.

    They seem easy, or am I naïve?

    Though it’s limericks I ken,

    I’ll try haiku again.

    (Perhaps feedback I’ll this time receive.)

    Haphazard paper sculpture
