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
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.

I do so love a very sharp pencil. Sharpening pencils is oddly satisfying to me too.
A sharp pencil gives me such a feeling of satisfaction when I start off writing. Every time.
