The Poet and the Itch

the pen is made to
scratch
and the paper to
acquiesce
sustain the remark
and the poet
to follow the question
mark
perhaps to see?
what faces define a life
for gain or disadvantage
to learn
to refrain from
judgement
knowledge may have an evil twin
misinformation
unstable
nevertheless, the poet must
scratch
feel that pen
accept that unrelenting itch

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
