The book - an abridged dictionary.
I open the cover, discover
a library record,
the book had not been
checked out or checked in.
1974 is stamped clearly on the page.
I found it under a hill of stored paperbacks.
I must have stolen it.
Who the hell would steal a dictionary!
Then it comes to me –
a young man hungry for words
