The Pen and its Wielder (By Alessia Collia)

 Sometimes poetry,
feels like hyperactivity,
through a pen. 

Mental distraction,
in an action,
by the pen. 

But sometimes there is structure, 
the architecture, 
engineered by the pen.  

Sometimes just releasing, 
forehead un-creasing, 
thanks to the pen. 

We try to decode it, 
unload it, 
the thinking of the pen.

Though sometimes limitation is felt,
like the tightening of a belt, 
by the mind behind the pen. 

For furiously, 
curious is the nature 
of men.
