A Very Heavy Dictionary

What letter could an aberration reveal
That which redundant won't conceal

Pages yellow illustrations
Wages fellow ministrations

Upon my table where you sit
Where my elbows bend to knit

Fables on the hands that weave
Fated language English heave

Could you lose the unabridge
Edition older than the ridge

Where I thought it all had gone
Drama folded bookish dawn

But by now it's afternoon
And the weight will crush me soon
