The Marriage Of A Poem - Poem by P.C. McKinnon

For Talia

There is something about
An empty page
That makes me want to fill it.

Empty spaces filled with traces
Of not so much
That belong to me for now.

This vested virgin soon to be
Undressed with thought,
Consummated with words.

The rhetorical wonderment
Explodes through fluid strokes
Of realized imagination.

Dancing in fields of satisfaction,
The music of pureness
Releases satisfied desires.

And, now the whole world
Has witnessed
The deflowering of an empty page –

A marriage of thought and rhetoric
Complete with wordy children
For future generations to inherit.

(San Antonio,2004)
