Tools of the Trade

writer with pen




I don’t like writing with a pencil.
Pencils seem impermanent,
erasable, pale and insipid.
I need a pen,
preferably a fountain pen.

Ink that flows with my thoughts
not leaden
but smooth
and with colour.

I was going to save my fountain pen
only for writing in my journal
but saving ink
is hardly the way to become
a writer.
So I’ll be generous
and lavish blue ink
all over these wonderful lined pages.
Fill them all,
use it up,
buy cases of refills
but write.
