There's something romantic in the dust
that rests upon a shelf of books
it arouses literary lust;
and thread-like cobwebs in the nooks
that gleam in light like silver floss,
and catch the paper hungry moths―
those knowledge-loving petty crooks―
They light upon an author's bust;
an interview of sorts, it looks,
to get in with the upper crust.
