dirt on the welcome mat

Fine words, not print,

Snatch the most from you.

Take your chances

And skip straight to

The x and dotted line,

But each letter you sign

Will be in ink invisible,

A language unknown.


Fingers to pen, ink to page

These are the vital signs,

More than breath and blood,

Handwritten proof of humanity

In a scribbled stage name,

Undulating letters’

Loops and lines

Measure heartbeats

Around the world.
