If I use my pen to paint a poem
Can I wet it in a crystal brook
Adding clarity to my thoughts

Or dip into the inkwell of bloom
Bringing colour to my words

Or measure it against the moon
To capture light and shade

Can I plunge it up into the clouds
To borrow menace and stillness

Can I scratch my skin to paint
My feelings in blood

If I use my pen to paint poetry
Would you hang me from your wall?
