CONTROL-Z
(9/11/07)


the undo
command
saves my ass
several times
a day

I've used it
so often
that it's a reflex
finger combination
to any bad
keystroke karma

I can
take it back
so quickly
at times
that the adverse results
do not have
the opportunity
to appear
upon the screen

my internal
intent check
takes over
almost
instantly

what
I wouldn't give
to have that function
in the remainder
of my life
but all too often
I see my mistakes
displayed
quite suddenly
on the faces
surrounding me
in wraparound
disappointment

I have already
clicked
to the next frame
before realizing
the results
of my words
and any chance
to return
for repair
has passed

another
personal
application
closed
by carelessness

hang a keyboard
about my neck
and show me
the door
