Pick up thy pen

Pick up thy pen

and run

fingers over paper.

Feel the lines,

they crave your attention.

They deserve your touch.

They will suck the ink from your nib.

I promise

you will come

on the page

and wonder

‘How was that for you’.

  1. My first thought is: such naughty lines. My second thought is: As a last resort, the muse is pimping the page. My third thought is: It might be safer to use a condom when putting pen to paper. There would be no risk of spreading disease, but also, no chance of fertility. My fourth thought is: Given an exhortation like this, is there anyone who could resist putting 🖊 pen to 📝 paper. And my fifth thought is: I think Alimoon would be very interested in this.

    I think it is a very memorable poem.

    Now… Where, can I remember, have I been keeping my pen?
