BONERS


I get
pissed
when I make
mindless mistakes
especially the ones
that are impossible
to go back
and neatly
correct
with this typewriter
like leaving out
letters
words
or phrases
forcing me
to retype
pages
and
pages
due to minor
but critical
omissions

although
at times
they lead me
to awkward passages
allowing the opportunity
to review and revise
unfortunate phrasing
that otherwise
might have been
lazily
left behind

so now
I try to look
upon these errors
as second chances
to perfect
my suspect
art
still
I feel the need
to express my displeasure
at their discovery
with emphatic
outbursts
of vulgrity

SHIT!!!
