The Genius of the Typo (A POEM OF SORTS)
Waiting for the poetry
Never find
Type the words
Type the leaves
Waiting for a
Ride to pick
Me up
What kind of air is this?
Smells of orange
Grass during the spring’
The winter
There’s still grass
Waiting for a ride to pick me up
Spring seems
So hung-over
And it hovers in my head
The lake was
Bought by the bank and
The names of those
Who poison people with
The winter
And I’m waiting for a ride
To pick me up
In the front of
The house
A bird
And it yells
slamming door stutters
And birds
Echoes of spring
I’m waiting for a ride to pick me up
And now
I’m not
I’m gone.
