Les Rêves Canadiens


      Scribe


Titled I write,
     As verb and noun entwined,
Slanting into the rationalizing gales

     Of hurtful prior words:
Said, written, thought and hinted at;
   Writer, WRITE!
Reed scratching paper,
     Drying ink forgotten
        As the stylus moves on
Against the empirical word-winds
     Of Hisstory.
Scribe, SCRIBE!
The vellum tears and still
   A nib of weeping ebony
Trails downward,
   While all this uphill
   Italic asymmetry
Also curves my spine.
