Notes to this poem…
Unlibrary is a term coined by Umberto Eco meaning what was described in the haiku above. I was looking at one particular bookshelf while I had a few minutes to kill before going to the bus stop to the airport and start my family reunion vacation for 2017. I’ll just put the poems in with their categories, though, because I’m basically out of letters, or will be, if I give one to sets on every trip in serializing my poems. I will add a new category called Vacations, for poems written while on vacation from now on. However, they won’t have their own serializing letter in the poem “titles”.
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
