pen of absolution

My pen of absolution

            Is fat with dark ink longing for the page.

Its length is smooth, hard, and rounded

            In my tightly gripping hand,

            Sliding up and down between my fingers.

Shouting the refrains of my confusion,

            Death, and hope –

Bittersweet with subtle fragrances

            That others often miss

As I take refuge in hiding

            Behind its cryptic phrases.
