the pen is without proof

the pen is without proof. it is the paper that tells all. when the jury is convened and you stand before your peers it is not the pen that bears evidence, but the container that has collected its ink. your thoughts or intentions won’t provide testimony. the obscenities and sacrilege that had context in your head, that made everything make sense, will not sway anyone. you are alone with the words you have written.
