at the biro

By Claudia Piccinno 

 

Ode to you

eaten biro,

ode to you

voice of the timid

and mizzen of love.

Ode to you

forerunner of cartridges and toner.

Ode to you

that puts away from the window

the nib and the inkwell.

Ode to your coloured transparencies

metallic moods.

Ode to you

catharsis of lost souls!

Ode to you

that bleeds gall

as if

a betrayed woman

writes for you.

I will praise you forever

oh flowing ink,

because obstinately

you shy away

the ticking

of the keyboard.
