(So, today in Uncultivated Rabbits, the spoken word/poetry club at UCI, we had a workshop based on a letter between two inanimate objects, which was inspired by the Sarah Kay poem, "A Love Letter..." I worked with a good friend of mine named Jordon and we ended up creating this piece about the relationship between a paper and pen. Let us know what you think!)
Paper: Dear Pen,
Pen: Dear Paper,
Pen: I love flowing my juices onto you,
But you make me bleed,
Can't you see that maybe this relationship was meant to be.
Paper: As you write on top of me,
Your tip spewing your luscious thoughts
Down my body
Penetrating boldly, tracing the letters on my skin,
By the end of this love game, you will win
The prize -- your thoughts, your words, your everything in me--
I mean, on!
Pen: I love how you easily give in,
Paper: I love how you easily take
Both: But, there is a problem
Pen: You cut and make me run dry
Paper: You scratch and sometimes tear
Pen: I've moved onto other pages
Paper: You've used me up until there's no more,
And made me your whore,
Watched as you moved onto the next sheet
Leaving me behind with your thoughts, your words, your everything.
I am just trash.
Pen: I'm sorry this is the end for the both of us,
Hopefully, we'll go our separate ways and
Maybe I'll revisit you someday.
Paper: It is not you who is done with me,
I'm done with you,
So, I hope not to see you soon.
Both at the same time:
P.S. I love you.
P.S. Fuck you.
