my pens
all of them
sick
      with feverish
sun dried
center console
car-
     hot
death

napkins
and receipts
and fliers
cry
(almost) silently
     fluttering
about the floor boards
and dancing
like tired whores
on the back seat

my pens
all of them
dead

I say nothing.
nothing at all.

An interesting image...but I would like to have seen it explored deeper--what does it really mean when a writer's pens are sick and dying?

Sounds a lot like my car and pens. I'm convinced the pens is becasue I buy cheap...ten for a dollar at the dollar store. Car because I'm blocked from caring enough to appear neat and organised. And I don't want to know what's in those fluttering papers. Even a normal bank statement seems to have it's secret horrors.
