A.M. Scratch
May 8, 2001

Flip another page
a new day has begun
time is five a.m.
waiting for the sun

Caffeine for the body
smoking on demand
wait for me to wake up
put an old pen in my hand

A lonesome sheet of paper
is waiting patiently
to feel the fountains touch
and take the thoughts from me

The pen and empty paper meet
I scratch between the lines
what will be the subject
can we make it rhyme

Will it look too ugly
might it feel too blue
If the writer cries
will the paper shed tears too

We try to work together
closely as a team
we must become one
the paper, pen and me
