To the words I write

On black marble,
I engrave on you the stories
of a lifetime
etched with ink
and feather ends.

To the words I write
on recycled ply
I engrave on you the letters
of a life
etched with lead
and pencil shavings.

To the words I write
so delicately with care
you are my soul
and I thank you.
