The Poet Always Carries a Notebook

What is he scribbling on the page?
Is there snow in it, or fire?

Is it the beginning of a poem?
Is it a love note?

What is the first yawn of the morning?
The gasp while the scale delivers its news?
The sink full of dishes?
The newspaper full of bad advice trumpeted as truth?
The son calling from jail?
The uncertain purpose of the day's activities?
These words seen in blog form?

Are they all love notes?
