Checking the calendar, I see
that today I must make
a profound decision that will
affect my life for years to come.
I am certain it will not be
a simple decision, important
decisions seldom are, and this
offers multiple but no easy choices.
I have long taken the facile way
around the issue, a straightforward
“same as everyone else does”
approach that has gotten me by.
But it is time for a change, so I
am left with organizing my library
by month and day of birth of author,
year not counting, first name initial,
or, and here is where I am leaning
given my love of the film High
Fidelity, arranging them in
perfect autobiographical order.
