Books Of Beauty

Books Of Beauty

Quills and parchments evolve
papers and pens

Books of beauty all started with one stroke on one sheet

Wandering around this empty paper
peeking over the margins
pushing the borders
traversing every ruled line
I look for inspiration
to come dripping out of my pen
landing artistically on the page
in an elegant combination of words
so that I might see myself
with more to give than just carbon dioxide

I want to be worthy of my own printing press
