Anthem for used books

In the re-freshing of reading
in passing from hand to hand
in the devouring by gaze
in the scramble of re-telling
writer is broken and re-made
poet reconfigred
into the oblivion of dust
immortalized in word and syntax
lines that will never read the same
and these special-needs homes
the dead are resurrected
by soft-finger flip
and time that stays
in the textual currency
beyond price.
