You can’t use the space bar when backspacing.
I’ve begun writing for an hour now.
Nothing to show but white space
after deleting thoughts.
Talk about white supremacy.
What if every thought
was sentenced to paper?
Every tree beaten to a pulp?
Fiction and non, single spaced,
no margins of error,
looking like an inkblot
for our subjective peruse?
Libraries full of them,
bound like prisoners,
serving their sentences,
and hoping for parole.
May I have a word?
The Apostle John’s first sentence in his gospel…
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
Oh to bookend the font of creativity with playfulness.
Messing with words is one of my favorites activities. Thanks Jasper!
There’s a playfulness when messing around with words that has the potential to bring interesting ideas to light.
