A Blemish

I tried thinking
the words onto paper:

then, a white pen;

but there was always
a shade of difference.

I tried speaking
whilst just
holding the sheet

but it always changed.

How can I make my mark
but leave this world

pristine, intact?

  1. Great question Brian… In fact it has shaped my own life in many ways in one form or another. For instance,the only poems of mine that I think are worth it are written fairly intuitively. If I stay with this and simply “wipe the mirror clear of steam” as I edit further, I’m happy, but if I have to “work it” too much it strays and feels too singular and thus tainted. This one is grand!
