Who was in my library?

Gary Snyder: Axe Handles

I am sorry I disturbed you.

I broke into your house last night
To use your library.
There were some things that I had to look up.
A large book fell
and knocked over the others.
Afraid you'd wake and find me
and be truly alarmed
I left
Without picking up.

I got your name from the mailbox
As I fled, to write you and explain.
