My Infatuation with Words

A wide lined black and white marble notebook

Two Ticonderoga pencils 
      tucked into grooved slots
      of  a wood box 
      a flexible red rubber eraser turned into
      a contortionist touching nose to toes

five year diary with a lock
      each entry begins dear diary 
      ball point pens 
      smudged words

hard covered notebooks with numbered pages
       a table of contents
       quotes from books
       lists of words
       trying out style and voice
       looking for a fit
       thin technical pen 

three ring notebooks
       ten minute morning writings
       collections of books on writing
       writing prompts

Selectric typewriter
       white correction tape for typos
       Chicago Manual of Style
       tracking  submissions
       rejections Modge Podged 
       on a metal waste basket

Apple computers
      File folders of poems, essays
      A daily blog
      stats list the number of readers

a Leuchtturm grey softcover notebook 
    an intimate affair
    fountain pens with archival ink
