Faux Pas # 32,487


Stepping outside is required for some

to mess it up and make the laughter ring.

Out of alignment, the typo, the attempt

at intelligence becomes a stumbling run

at what was perceived as going well.

Often, it ends with flop-colliding that

leads to wondering what went wrong.


Sometimes breathing evenly is wrong.

Who can blame the tone deaf for singing

off key? Occasionally, a swift tumbling

bumpkin mistake avidly persues today's

mission for fools and the uncoordinated.

Wrong is what tells us we are alive,

imperfect, and breathing all at the same

impact point.
