Good On Paper


At first glance
she's
good on paper
i's dotted
t's crossed
cursive characters
flowing and aligned
perfection.

Then...

Take a closer look
and see
the hard erasures
heavy strike-throughs
the mis-spells
and typos
the foreign words
folds across the surface.

She's good on paper
but she's better
off.
