The Etiquette of Scribes

Understand the proportion of one letter to another

and of your emotion in proportion to mine; this selfishness

is intolerable! Either side, I deserve better missive, or

an apology the depth of an ocean comprised of centuries

of hurricanes of tears, oceanic sobbing and contrition,

clouds eternally closing over the globe, hunkering

close to an earth of mud sinking into its own regret

over having treated us so very badly!
