Knowledge is portable these days
Disposable, on demand, clickable – it’s
Intangible in many ways
Encyclopaedia Britannica, volume twenty-nine
Once sat in line, on a school library shelf
Now it’s hardbound wisdom and paper is mine
There I shall draw and sketch out ideas
Amongst the states and nations of UK-USA-Yugoslavia
Develop my practice, overcome my fears
Tangible research and drawing combined
To carry and share, to consult offline
A safe place to expunge a restless mind.
