Fingers Trudge

September 29, 2021
Fingers Trudge ~ Illustration by Patrice

Fingers trudge
across the page 
feeling
the paper’s texture 
smooth
hardly any grain. 

Will the pen 
fill the lines
printed
on this page 
or
will it be vacant 
unused
crumpled
thrown away? 

Fingers hesitate
and then 
pick up trusty pen
and say 
words that fill this page 
with all they want
need
to say.
