The Smell of Old Books

Ldred_quotes

The sense of smell sits
on the margin of memory,
connections that conjure
the relics and records
collecting layers of
dust, darkening buddhi.
Evolving volatiles that
whiff of chocolate or coffee,
waft from the timeworn
tomes drafting whilom tense:
measures that manufacture
the mind from milestones.
