Issue 2: Scott Starbuck

Ancient Sacred Texts Conversing
in the Library at Alexandria

That camel herder is learning
to Make a Million Deben

while his son reads
50 Ways to Seduce Women.

Near the bay window
one reads Cleopatra’s Beauty Secrets

as if inner beauty doesn’t matter.
These people have the universe

at their fingertips but they don’t care.
They’d rather read the usual goat skins.

--Scott Starbuck
