Filling in.

Black blank ink
trickles over a page of shapes,
filling holes, bridging gaps.
 but not in a ‘Christian Brotherhood’ sort of way.

This is the past-time,
for an hour or two,
of the soul-hungry individual.
With this filling in he blocks out everything,
for an hour or two.

Who needs faces with holes,
when you have words without.

    poetry does wonders doesn’t it?
