new notebook (a poem for november 3, 2012)

Posted on Updated on

Just some quick backstory… my dog ate my notebook. Yes, he ate the notebook in which I write my poems! But undaunted, I strode manfully to the mall and bought a new notebook. That notebook is the subject of a little poem I write tonight.

smell of the paper
feel of the grain
this notebook needs to be lettered
like the ground needs the rain

it holds my pen
steals my breath
i must dig into this paper
plumb it’s width, breadth and depth

something will be found
treasures yet unknown
despite all other gain
i shall have arrived home
