“O for a Muse of fire,
that would ascend
The brightest heaven
of invention,
A kingdom for a
stage, princes to act
And monarchs to
behold the swelling
-Willam Shakespeare
King Henry V


Couldn’t spell
Still can’t
Letters standing where they
Migrating from pen to line
Looking funny
Marking time
Looked different a minute ago
I squint
Hold up my text
Kinda look left footed
And the rules
The rules of grammar
Lost in my head
What do they say
i before e
the idiosyncrasies
and always
my tongue sticks
