The Cast Aside

Lonely, they must be.
The books and maps, cast aside.
They’ve outlived their use
now, they are falling into
their own disconnected world.
They are entire realms,
bridged only by the dull pull
of my nostalgia…
Oh, how lonely they must be…
those books and maps, cast aside.

A short poem inspired by the stacks of formerly used notebooks I keep. -MC
