Junk Collector

I collect things

Probably too many things

I’m not a hoarder

But many items number my collections

Most of its useless

I have a fondness for the 1940′s

My office has three aging Philco radios

Four old typewriters

Ashtrays everywhere, from every casino imaginable

There’s a couple of quill pen sets around

Subtle reminders that I write, as well as type

There are stacks of papers

Writings of all flavors, many incomplete

And books

Books, books, and more books

Many never read

But, oh how the books are everywhere

I feel comfort in their surroundings

Like old friends leaning in

Offering suggestions or ideas

Sometimes good

Sometimes not
