Obscure Writing



Committing nothing
Obscuring page like your word
Easily erased




A low vibratory words gurgled and when she couldn’t be understood he handed her a pencil. Her brow furrowed in clear dismay. A pencil she thought, commits nothing to paper. It must be a pen for this is the last time I will commit anything to paper in this life again.

The following video is a little bit of obscure writing done by a true master Weird Al about another true master Bob Dylan. Enjoy!

You packed a lot to think about into 17 syllables.

I always wondered what to do with those scraps of verse that failed to fit the poem. Who knew they were a song? Kristen, you are a fount of knowledge.

Surely they do not last, I dislike pencils, they make me cringe when I write with them :) cool H-ku

I like pencils since I can scribble scribble scratch and edit too. :) But nowadays, it is computer keyboards...but still doing in the same!!

I enjoyed the scribbles, the haiku and the clever palindrome-fest.

I only use a pencil for crosswords so I can make and erase the mistakes that infuriate my OH.

just loved the haiku you created, you sure provided a lot to think about.

I too agree with Nanka, i prefer writing with mediums i can erase and over-write, when i am done then i go for the solid thing.
