Tower Poetry Society


Tower Poetry (1991) cover art by Kim Davis
 

The Filled Pen

glossy paper whiteness stares at me
mirrors empty thoughts

out of a dense fog ideas
slowly propel to the foreground
pen manoeuvres as rampant
thoughts vie for attention

relief escapes my lips as the pen
frantically scribes
words and thoughts saturate the page
shatter glossy reflection of paper

evening shadows dance in celebration
I lay down my pen temporarily satisfied

— Stella Mazur Preda
