I’m sure many of us have gone through spelling hiccups as we incessantly FB, tweet, text, la dee dum….

 

Before the typos the words made sense.

There was a rhythm, a  rise and a fall.

 There was an applause,

 

but after the daft

misspelling

misnomer

mistake

damn damn damn.

 

Not a murmur.

Not a ripple of delight.

Not even a possibility of excitement.

 

The heart sinks to remember

the imbecile who started out

one day chewing a pen, rustling a paper

inspired by Whitman and his Leaves

eddying-

 

How many leaves

have left their branch and kin

how many  flew like birds from nests brave,

how many wrinkled and reddened

ashamed by their weakness,

How many have died?
