I hide collecting stamps

Like some men hide in the closet

Not out of shame

But out of tiredness

Explaining a hobby

That once took the world by storm

Now relegated

to the proverbial back alley

behind a game of checkers.

  1. Bowling and now Stamps, this is a publication to check out. Interesting and never boring or repetitive. I mean that.
