god’s gift to paper

you don’t just do these things to give
yourself something to look at.
i didn’t wake up one day feeling bad
about the way paper was being treated.
i was never god’s gift to paper.
there is no prize for disabling the
happiness derived from sleep.
nobody is keeping track of how many
words are crossed out.

if all of this rings true & i believe it you
may be certain that i have no trophy’s
in need of the shining, no sympathy for
the mirror, no name worth the capital letter,
no bed kept waiting without the reason,
& no ink in need of the fading.
