Dogs 2018

8s & 5s
(6/11/18)

half assed
eights

over flourished
fives

numbers
of mine

numbers
of others

trouble
me
at times

determinations
are being made
upon these
faulty digits

these
erroneous
ciphers

I prefer
someone

I prefer
myself

anytime

all
of
the
time

at a keyboard
to keep
the manual
disdexterity
to minimum

my totals
look bad
enough

without
increasing
my debits

decreasing
my credits

I look
down
upon
my latest
notes

cannot
distinguish
a nine

from
a four
in a phone
number

I am
amazed
that I have
gotten by
this far

hopefully
the final
headstone chisel
will prove
more fool
proof

so that
I do not
die
before
my time
