The Last Book

The novel died
10,000 years from now
When no one reads anymore
But the books will take
Aeons to dissipate
Atomic shells at last letting go
One last book rests
On the last shelf
In the last library
One million years from now
Not even wind exists to turn the pages
Much less man
But the words remain
For now
