Vintage Words


No other word works here.

The rest of the dictionary

is unemployed. The pen

can no longer write the more

for lack of inkstainability.


The stress marks come

as exclamation points. Periods

come in threes indicating

endless lists.


Words strain and try

to explore and express ways

to feel, but there exist no

questions marked or

otherwise to answer

better one touch of a

pen to page or a pencil's

tip to a napkin.
