You caught me
Outside of class
(Modern Conflicts)
Just now

Where I could tell you
I had written that
Poem from yesterday
I promised

“I’ve got to write a
poem about this now.”
I had said.

And you jabbed
About whether or not
It was free verse

You watched as I
Formatted and
Printed it for you

There was a discrepancy

I didn’t know I had
Your name wrong

An “S”, not a “Z”
I thought I knew
What I was doing

But you

And became


I was only
Slightly late
To International

But you had my
Earnest thanks

I ended up
Amending the title


I learned a little
More about you

Like that you like
Lavender incense
And your name is spelled
With an “S”

Not a “Z”
