How to design a constellation.

None of these classifications is satisfactory by itself. In practice, every library is started from a combination of these modes of classification, whose relative weighting, resistance to change, obsolescence and persistence give every library a unique personality.
-Georges Perec, "2.1, Ways of Arranging Books" Penser/Classer, Editions Galilee 1974

In heaven your elbows will fall tighter,
Rougher to the last edge of me.

To each, since I'm already there,
Beg you now,

Fall as falling was asked lastly and
By scraps from scraps of you.

Configure, dear wishes,
As if sailors' spoils, and their raw delivery, counted on
The count of inches.
