Reflections on My Pen

image

Here is a pen that needs to be wiped;
The ink overflows a bit.
I am that pen, am I not?
Beautiful and shiny: a Lamy Studio!
But it doesn’t write right;
The ink is uneven.
Tolerable and even better than other pens,
But unsatisfactory,
Given the price I paid for it.

I wonder what God thinks of me?
