Spent all day proofreading.
All those hours to track down
a handful of typos.

I’ve scoured miles of fields
and woods and never seen an error
unless it was human-made.

Perhaps we invented the concept
and went looking for it
anywhere and everywhere

except in ourselves,
disguising the fact
that none of us will admit.
