Pen Power or Cut and Paste?

Do your ideas begin in ink?

Or do they only take shape

once your fingers

hit the keyboard?

If you hope and try to write

can you tell a story if you type?

Do you need a screen to copy and paste

or would a typewriter suffice?

Would your words work as well

if spoken first?

Have you ever created a character

without a pencil in hand?

Do stories change

once they hide inside your screen?

I must observe that the words

once inside my head

take shape

in so many different ways these days

That I can’t decide if I prefer

to use the pen
