The poet fascinated
By writing tools
Had collected some
Valuable ink pens over
The last thirty years
Of his life
As he began filling
Unlined notebooks
With his poetry.

Cleaning up an apartment
With his friends
He came across a yellow
Lamy pen
He checked out for function
Cleaned it up.

Inserted a new cartridge
It wrote again with a nib
Specific to its user he will
Present it to her as a
An extension of one’s soul.
