Manipulate – To handle or use with skill. That’s what we do, us, self proclaimed poets, scribes and the like we rip up paper with words of expression, our commitments of love or our vows to hate who and what we hate with a perfect hate. The power of the pen… the pen has no more power than the paper without words. So what’s more powerful? That’s it! The words, the verbs, the adjectives, the nouns all coming to life through what we say… In the beginning was the word…and behold we wrote and saw that it was good and so we called the first piece creativity. The paper was without form and so we wrote and saw that is was good and called the second piece poetry. We went through six pieces and at the seventh piece we rested. To relax the mind and stimulate the soul. The pen has no power the words have it all. Life and death are in the tongue, is it? Or is it the words we use with the tongue. Manipulate – that’s what we do.
