Musty

I am

Keeping my place

Like a bookmark on a page

In an old, shelved book

That once marked a quote

Someone wanted to remember.

I am

Curling inward

Like autumn’s fallen leaves

in forgotten piles.

They littered the lawn but

Someone forgot to burn them.

I am

Preparing to go

To leave this room

So new and clean

No place here

for one as

Musty

As me.
