i recently misplaced something that was probably important
in my hip pocket,
which i probably folded up
and put on a shelf. i am sure this was done with the best of intentions
i attempted to retrace my steps and visit all the shelves
i'd seen since i felt there was something important around,
but this is proving to be very difficult.
and no, i do not work in a shelf factory
as that would have been too obvious,
but if you were thinking about a library,
well, you certainly might not be wrong.
