This Writer's Mistakes

Consistently wrong
to process pretty journals,
but never write in them
because I deem spastic penmanship

Consistently wrong
to buy pictures
representing minor characters
in a story I’ve planned
to write for upwards
of a month and a half.
In fact,
after searching the computer-
methodically and repeatedly-
I can’t find the scene
my mind remembers the rhythm
of the typing, though exact
words of story escape.

Consistently wrong
to write columns
in my head,
but never actually
transfer words into required website
even after I’ve attended the event
and taken the pictures.

Consistently wrong
not to edit either
3-Day novels, half-finished poetry manuscripts,
or grad school applications.
