Gravely Critique (Richard Bell)

Posted on July 17, 2012 by in Heightened Talk

In my tomb of words
built by the sentences
that didn’t make sense

Typing errors line my coffin
burying me in out-of-place punctuation

Every grammatical mistake
on display for people to recognise

Surrounded by mixed tenses
for people to read

Judging me on how it is written

With critical grin on their faces
when the wording changes
The meaning of the line

In my grave
I wished I knew how to critique
