The Blank Page

can be a snowy winter setting 
duvet without a cover 
origami swan on the iced over lake 
flight - aeroplane 
for a fish and chip supper 
wrapping your plates with when you move
printed work – smudged ink 
newspaper
for writing notes
a rag or duster 
sleeve note 
receipt 
- treasurer of chewed gum 
flyer 
manifesto 
poem or story 
a yes or no answer
for the question 
do you want to be my partner
bad news 
rejection 
a grave of truth.
