March 2018 – a demon in the pen

I’m puddling away with the archives again (and still). Currently I’m soldiering through March 2018, and thought for a rest I’d pop a poem up here.

I was given a pen for my 50th birthday. A lovely gift and I use it still – on my bedside table is where it resides, for any and all overnight poetry to be captured.

Coloured Black, of course.


every day demon

Frank’s Pen

every day
a demon in the pen

I should

write a word
say it
on the paper

hope it sets
the mood

who knows
what deviousness
what world-change
a line that’s penned
might do

and who knows

if you put your trust
in demons that are in the ink
you better make something
from what
you get

every day

every day
a shaking pen
