NaPoWriMo 2012 day 6

today i tried too hard
like every day before
pressed down until graphite blunted
grey shouted all over white
careening course of point across pages
fought with fountain until ink ran dry
and in all the blotted blurting
nothing to show for it

and each push sends up storm clouds
futility writ loud in deepened furrows
nothing for it but to push on or give up
each as deeply dissatisfying as the other
no lesser of two evils apparent

fling pen in disgust
scowl, pout
barely hold back from drumming heels
and howling
a pick of perfect profanities
