Gerilla the Hun

When I was younger
– well, even four years ago –
I never wrote my name on books.
It seemed sacrilegious somehow.
Dirty. Smearing my garbage
on someone else.

These days, half the fun of a new book
is writing my name on it.

Its quite barbaric. Possessive.
I fear I have become a vile person.
