Sorting the books
It's the same old story. Too many books. Now's the ideal time to bring some pre-New Year resolution and order to the situation. Out of the boxes and down from the shelves they all come now. Some destined for pride of place in the dusted-out bookcase, several poetic works elbowing each other for that prime slot on the middle shelf, others relegated to lesser higher or lower shelves, or even worse to the cellar bound cardboard boxes. Some books will soon be on their their way to the Irish pub's Book-Crossing club. Others will dwell in obscurity until next year's local community bazaar. It's all going on now at the Poet-in-Residence-Residence!
