14 Colored Pencils

14      Colored Pencils


You see I am not alone

I know you’re out there

You who cannot resist

A box of colored pencils


Matter not how many you have

There is always recognition

That more will be better

Though many see no daylight


Art supply support groups

I will join but not yet

I am not ready to stop

This madness that feels good


It is the idea of it

Hoping to be a creative

Though never commencing

The act of pencil to paper


And Oh, the paper!

Don’t get me started

When I pass my children

Will divvy up the spoils
