Parker's Plight

Merely to scratch the surface Parker’s clogged nib ruminates “How annoying, scratch and scribble..” My horizontal paradise lost, marred by the occasion drool coming from Goliath. Laying down, often, I roll from side to side a cat’s paw for the skin sack above me ah…I am beyond maudlin I am blue, dilly dilly. Blue like the veins in the digited palms which twirl and whirl me across endless scapes of white. Oh, how I long for a brighter surface, a deeper well. Ah well, so full of Dear’s and Sirs and Madam’s that an occasional To Whom It May Concern causes twitters of laughter from the godhead. I would dance with the pretty pencil, if I could, but stand alone.. if only.. if only… I pray to the breath of life above for a pen stand, and perhaps pink paper? Destined only to stand or fall at its will, I mourn. I wonder what the paper thinks?
Sincerely, Parker *The Parker Pen Company is a manufacturer of pens, founded in 1888 by George Safford Parker in Janesville, Wisconsin, United States.

    I remember having to blot the text.... so frustrating. I use to experiment with calligraphy - we had to hold our Parker pens in a certain way to get the "thick and thin lines' just right.....Thank your this trip down memory lane. Congratulations on your win, Debbie. Love, Su
