Poetry Thursday–Sharpen Your Pencils and Take Some Notes

Hello, I’ve returned.

I wrote a new poem for you, person who decided to read this post.  It’s about pencils … or … is it?

(Haha, it’s not.)

Side note, the lack of capitalization and punctuation is a stylistic choice, because apparently you can do that in poetry.  In fact, my professors encourage it for some reason.  It drives me crazy, but I guess edginess is the goal of poetry.

Anyhoo, please enjoy the following poetry.

 

 

Sharpen Your Pencils and Take Some Notes

dull pencils
can be sharpened
pieces taken
cut
an all encompassing
circular razor
sometimes snapping the core
too much is
taken
pieces left
behind
can break too
splinters
under fingernails
when hands reach to fix
this
mess
pencil is
dull
too much use
abuse
pressed on paper
graphite blood
should it be made
sharper
when usefulness
comes
from
pain
