You may write as an old dip pen,
Repeatedly immersing yourself,
Repeatedly leaving a trail.
You may write as a fountain pen
Having drunk deeply yet
Discretely contained the ink.
You may write as a ballpoint
Emptying ink from within.
Or you may write as a pencil,
Sharp, blunting with use,
Sharpened - shaved to sharpness -
The wood discarded, the lead
Cut, and the spoor left
Yourself scrawled on the page.
