Letting Go

Letting Go


Letting go is hard for me,

I hang on to men way past the expiration date

In hopes things will change, and we can work it out.

I have learned to let go of men like that

But hang on to books,

They are the milestones of my life—

I keep books about local politics,

Collections from Kooser, Ai, and Chock,

Even an inscribed Bible from a devout friend,

Other books are ready for letting go but

Wait for Covid restrictions to ease for donations,

They linger like silent guests.
