Trademarks

Books with covers that are stained, ripped, torn, broken and bent,
With pages inside bearing fading ink, finger prints and coffee stains
With scars of dog-eared reminders and pencilled notes
Are literal trademarks of a better read.
Favour the experienced traveller that’s been handed down,
Shared and loaned,
Stolen and bought,
Taken and traded,
Rather than the novice fresh print.
Who wrote it is important.
Who read it, equally so.
