Jim,

I saw it on Twitter and enjoyed it. I was mostly mad that I hadn't thought of it first. The last stanza (?) is interesting in the ways it recreates the chaos of books. I think he makes two mistakes that a later poet can improve upon. (1) I think it would be more compelling if the book titles were real book titles; (2) I think the books wedged in should have had real names, not "wedged" etc.

Still, it's a cool idea and well executed.
