alignment perfection in the library

six by forty-five
columns and rows
of compact discs
in plastic cases
on shelves before me
with a small wire rack
of digital video discs
perched above.
alignment perfection
of almost 300 rectangles
pleases the eye.

i think of pixels
i think of satellites
and i think of corn kernels
aligned on the cob.
a perfect wall of bricks
a brace of stones along a creek
a marching band
lined up in uniform
before the game begins.

i think of a round of solitaire,
the playing cards
in columns and rows
then think of us
the hermit crabs
with nothing to do
but count the discs
the columns and rows
