Blank Verse

Blank verse; like blank tape, empty page or screen.
No words, no tunes, the canvas is bare. Let’s
paint a musical night-time scene of
darkness, horror, death and destruction then
lighten the mood with traditional jazz.

An awkward sound, a misspelt word; spellcheck
is advising me. I press delete and
use a pencil; hover over the page.

Unravelled tape snaking out; a screwed up
ball of A4. Both are thrown towards a
bin; it’s always the same situation.
