I’m the book you see on clearance shelves.
Fully priced upon new arrival,
Then quickly 75% off regular price after a few weeks.
Picked up and bought only a few times
as there was nothing else out at the time.
Only read half way, then sold back.
I’m an open book but you choose to read others instead.
I’ll never be read until the end,
But I’ll remain in your possession.
The day you decide to sell me back
I guess I’ll go back to being tossed into the clearance shelf,
Still open, but only from having other books shoved through my pages.
