Biro Blue

By John Aldred

Biro blue, biro black
Roll along
The parchment track,
Smoothly flow
O'er faint ruled lines.
Biro blue, biro black
Arrest the thoughts
Prison them in whatever hue
Is seeping from the rounded tip.
Leave them there
For future eyes
To learn the magic
Of Biro blue
Or Biro black.
