My old yellow pad was comforting by comparison.
That friendly space let me stop with a word or two.
I could say to it,
"I don't feel like writing,"
And toss it aside on a chair.
But the cursor won't stop waiting.
What does it care about writer's block?
It says, "Think on me,
Put down something,
Fill up the space, Fuel me with ideas,
Fine tune them when you will."
And so I have a whole screenful,
Finally I can quit writing.
--Wait, Wait, I have another thought--
