Unfinished Works

Spiral notebooks -
containing traces of 
ideas, drafts, false starts
and unfinished works.

Doodles and rambling thoughts
scribbled on collage rule paper -
blue lines 
and standard margins

written in pencil 
pages smudged 
and torn by the eraser
nothing permanent.   

Somewhere in those 
scattered thoughts
live insight, wisdom
and poetry.
