Graphite Study

Graphite Study

the student
and her case stuffed full of pencils and pens
she just now zipped it open
just like that
grabbed the sharpener
freshened up her pencil point
only to drive it right back into the paper full
of equations

the pencil scraping out the numbers
going in and out of her head
neat and efficient and high speed
thought to paper and paper to thought

I watch her sharpen that pencil again.
