Gravely Critique (Richard Bell)

Verity La 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
