No Pen

Thoughts are rolling

and roiling -

I need to get them

out of my head

and on to paper,

just to stop their screams.

Problem is

I don’t have a pen.

There, on the floor,

lies a feather.

Black,

bringing the image

of the crow it came from,

but the shaft is thick enough to split

and now -

voila! -

a pen!
