the window stands
by wind-clattering mirror
moments that never include paper

i lift brick pencil
with worn-out eraser
thinking of obstacles
busy street
still words
a simple face
settled with memories

in the city
poets stand
on street corners, tall
dreaming of undreamed magic

whilst pens take up the whole sidewalk
invisible they are
scribbling on mind’s written pavements
