Treasure Island

Elizabeth Koblar

(01/28/1994 / Ocala, FL)

Wasted Ink


Ink spills on sandy sheets of paper,
Shifting in dunes and reams.
Pens playing across grains and
Slipping from shape to shape.

Words are unfound.
Elusive and tricky,
Like a game of clumsy cat
And quiet mouse.

I've lost a muse
And gained a blockade.
