Recycling Poetry

I was walking across (you guessed it!) St. Mark's Place one recent Saturday morning, when I saw this lone book on the stairs of a building:

Lone book.

On closer inspection, it turned out to be an uncorrected proof of Kenneth Koch's finest collection of poems: New Addresses:

New Addresses.

East Village Today leaves things as they're found, but not everyone does. When I passed by again later that morning, the uncorrected proof was gone!

Book gone.

You might say it found a new address!
