When all such autographs

And their outmoded couplets

Write each other’s epitaphs

And finally call it quits,


To end their eminent domain

In a photogenic bookiniste


(Where all poems are ex-libris’d):


When that day comes, never mind:

Feats continue without Guinness,

Their worldly records signed,

Bound, and saved within us.
