For my friend, a poem by Allan Bishop

O pencil,

A friend to me,

With you, I create a universe once more,

With you, I create things that aren’t real,

I give life to words which can’t move,

And I create places where the laws of nature are disobeyed.

You pencil, do I have complete power over you,

Or do you fly out of my hand,

And write what you want?

You pencil,

A divine instrument,

You have the ability to jump out of my hand,

Creating worlds invisible to the human eye!

 

Allan Bishop
