    Measured Talk of Writer's Block
    ____________________________


    I stare at blank pages, 
    and the pages stared back
    No words forming fiction, 
    no words formed a fact.

    “Can prose paint a picture?”

    I ask my pen that.

    “Can text make a measure 
    of thick, thin, or fat?

    If it wrote the rules, 
    could it write 'bout that?”

    If songs of weights and measures 
    defined my pains and pleasures, 
    and marked each map of mind 
    with a  red “❌” as a joke...

    ...would you still take my letters 
    to be things that I wrote?
