Plye pen againe

Under this reduced hand,
my writing slightly askew,

(less old script from my fountain pen,
loosen your grip, man, to let the nib scrape
without the chisel effect of an inky furrow)

I shall claim a small victory
over this place
by a return to legible verse,
by lifting my plough,
bracing,
and taking the next line straight.
