  • Mistakes

    I work in pen and ink.
    My arrogance does not permit
    the possibility of error.

    Which means I'm foolish,
    since the pages of my journal
    are often illegible.

    Words and lines and paragraphs
    scrawled over, scratched out.
    Pages as a testament to error.

    Sometimes I pray for humility
    which would require patience
    but if patience is the gift I'm granted.
