Novels
albeej

They huddle on shelves like sardines
 1
crammed in cans
 2
even hungry paper lice are prevented
 3
entry into their literary leaves.
 4
Novels are an aggregate of grey matter
 5
whose ingenuities maw muted
 6
narratives for willing eyes;
 7
Taking us vicariously through fictional
 8
Plots unfolded by actions, speech and thoughts
 9
of fictional characters at our leisure.
 10
An immortal genre whose fame is enduring
 11
as long as there exist authors that write them
 12
and well-read people who read them.
