P#1 Blank

I stare.

It’s blank.

I stare some more.

Still blank.

My hand moves.

(Is it having a thought I don’t have?)

It stiffens. Stops.

False alarm.

I return to the glaring whiteness.

We stare at each other.

Minutes pass.




Still blank.

I think I can see the future! In three hours time . . . it will be . . .





Still blank.

(Sigh . . . ) This damn page . . .


I sleep.

    1. I agree with the “dumb thoughts” thing. When I wrote this, I was in a donut shop, staring at a page and I really wanted to write something deep, but my head was just so empty, all that came out was…this.
