Outside The Library - Poem by Patrick Dennis

This morning at five to ten nineteen souls
and I sit for the ten o'clock opening impatient and hungry eyed:
there's soul food inside.

Here are our votive offerings stacked up in piles of seven:
twice seventy stale romances bulwark-banked
mine on my left, hers on my right
and on and on down the line.
