calendar days

i mark them off
one
by
one

a dash ---
for each done day

an ink less from my worn out pen

a tap
to signal pending days

but with no circled number
to look forward to.

really like those words: an ink less from my worn out pen. For mostly they are made of material that cannot so easily wear out and that's such a nice metaphor, that sometimes a pen do can be worn out. Pens are interesting. To think that the thoughts are worn out or the writing is or oneself and then it is the pen...nice poem

antonia...it's fascinating really how we can put so much into one little thing. or how something so simple can actually be made complex. :) thanks for the thumbs up.
