Writer’s Block

Leaving brittle tooth marks
on the capped ends
of
blue inked pens

trailing protruding cheekbones
with the unbroken glide of
a favorite ballpoint

hashed backs of
unwashed hands
I am shaded from dark to
bleached out peach, skin tone

shadows spreading an
inky infestation
maybe I can write myself into a
comfortable intoxication.
