Re-arranging

pencil shavings join
the flakes of rubber
crumpled pages
pieces flying
through the air

grunts and groans
come from her
tired mouth
fighting with the
words in her head

the words that don’t
match what she
puts down on paper
when it sounded perfect
inside her head

and page after page
she scratches out
hoping that
if she writes enough
she’ll make sense of the clutter
