Day Four

Run around your house (or dorm room) and grab 5 items that all begin with the same letter. Write a poem as an ode to one of these items or that includes these items. 


Ode to My Pen

Black ink flows
like rapid rivers
of neurons flashing
electric, chemical thought
tattooing the page

Indelible ink
held in its chamber
until the click
until the tip’s scratch
until the scrawl

Oh my pen
how you save me
from the dark
from the listless pit
of black matter
in my mind
How you save me
by bringing forth
the deepest ember within
and call it
into the light
