The Journal - Poem by Thomas Lawrence

i threw away
the beautiful, expensive
mole skin journal
you bought me

i tore it up
with the same care and intent
that you put into buying it

i tore it up
with meticulous focus

it fit me perfectly

i have other journals
i edit as i write
tho my work suffers for it

i do it anyway
just to defy your advice
like a promiscious minister's daughter
