Robert writes stories with a pen on paper. Ten words rough estimate of words on a line. Robert writes small words, 20 words on a line, 30 words on a line. Why would a reader read this when she needs a looking glass? Robert makes a line that hovers above its page’s lineation. Squiggle doodle line, fading line. Robert traces a line that might be a doodle & that might be a perfect trace of a trace. Robert holds his pen in his hand when he goes for a walk. He always goes for a walk, he does not use his pen. Robert why do you not use your pen? Robert fondles his pen. Robert why, you do not speak? For 20 years Robert has not spoken words. Robert’s eyes make red clouds. The wind blows away Robert’s footsteps away. The rain washes away Robert’s footsteps away.
