second-hand book

improbable is understated.
there should be no doubt
a re-read is out of the question.

affinity is an excellent substitute
for affection. as pairings go, 
surface views yield no warnings;
but haven't we read that history?

countless volumes sit on shelves -
in the backs of minds centuries old.
words are unnecessary for chapters:

skip the details. read the last page.
