The Poetry of Pen and Paper

September 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

In a frozen white sky,
      pen writes his poem.
He sends across a spark,
      a spark into paper,
      causing her to shiver.
Drawing deftly down her page
      and woman-warped curves,
he chisels chiseled chips of letter
      pausing for Punctuation.
A period here.
      There is a need for laughter;
      it's not what he's after.
She exposes the alphabet,
      as he paints the words over her breadth,
      naked,
      for all to see.
Paper lies on her back,
      squirming soft squeals,
      she waits and wants a written conclusion.
A coma there,
      saving the exclamation for later.
Pen's poetry fill's paper's lines,
      and crosses her t's, and dots her i's.
The poem is almost sated,
      all alluring alliterations
      are in place.
The last fevered few
      thoughts travel through this length of his;
      out into a world of oceans that's her.
With the last bit of inspiration
      he pens the last word down.
The exclamation here!
With the exciting exiting end,
      the poem is now complete.
With an author's authorization,
      pen rests next to paper.

circa 1991

One of my oldest poems, published back in 1991 in the Valencian.  It was a small publication for Valencia Community College.

 

...for her...

Nybor, Queen of the UnderverseNybor, Queen of the UnderverseThis was actually an old quick study of an girlfriend from 1990. Ah to be in my 20's again... :) I was flipping through an old sketch book when I saw it. I had used conté crayons when I did it. I just like the feel and the color of it. I scanned it and digitally added the flower to it.
