out of ink

Each one of these pens has run out of ink. 

And it made me think – 

How long have they been there, 

Piled together in my drawer, 

Taking up space?  

How long would they have been there? 

Waiting only for the chance to be proven

No longer useful, 

Had I not taken the time

To assess them, 

And throw them away, 

So that only the pens that work for me, 

Remain.
