You have your ballpoint ink
and you have your fountain pen ink.
You have good old graphite sticks
and don’t forget the good old charcoal sticks.
How about them verbs
and the nouns that do things with those verbs.
How about all kinds of lines,
short and sharp, long and shapely lines.
So your snags are synthetic now.
Sure eating is a joy
but think about pixels
just waiting for a stylus
to play with them – stroke them.
Think about shifting gears, mister,
mosey to the depot,
hop on the late train.
Ride, ride, ride, pick a dot,
exit, enter, meander absent of cares.
