everything i need

are all the books i have
all the books i need?
i have a diary of an emigrant
piercing the national poses
of my countrymen.
i also have a novel about the last hours
of the great poet, with sentences
stretching over many pages,
which i can not get through,
although i have tried many times.
there is also the humanist compass,
and last but not least,
the source of all footnotes.
so are all the books i have
all the books i need? perhaps
that is not the right question.
because the question is,
do i have the courage to read them
again?
