Got a new pen

by Jem Croucher

What once was Brighton’s bead shop
now sells stationary
Upmarket and pretentious
but good enough for me
For on a shelf, bright colours
a row of writing pens
So I just had to have one
as I do that now and then

It’s rather good for poems
which I write ‘most every day
to capture life in words
and the things I want to say
And just as Gracey said it would
the one she showed me there
writes just like a dream
and is beyond compare
