Its blankness is intimidating. Yet
Shall I soon mar it. Watch me as I fling
Myself into a sexy new project.
When Lethe Bashar invited me to join
His magazine's new Moleskine art bazaar,
I said "of course" before I thought what coin
Of spirit I could offer. I'm not far
Along in choosing what to use to fill
My journal. Sonnets, sure, but something more?
I'm still excited, trembling with the thrill
Of trying something new, but will I bore
His public, who one day ere long will buy
Escape Into Life's wares? The aim is high!
