Lyall Benjamin

If It Was Chairs or Pots

If it was an early collection of chairs and pots
or fashion or God forbid rugby memorabilia;
questions would be asked, voices raised,
hackles elevated.

   But books?
   Let’s throw out the shit or burn it like nazis.

And years later.
Sheepish grins covered asses and OOPS.


Lyall Benjamin is a former bookseller and teacher. He and the editor met up by chance in his bookshop in Canberra, after many years pursuing different paths.
