Meat of the Message

Oh no
he’s skipped it
not realizing what the words
meant, how they lined up

I know sometimes I miscommunicate
I screw up like everyone

(or most people)

and today I’m especially
prone, letting my words slip
over each other like a rock

I’ll send a more polished
response when I am more
aware of language.
