Unabashed fault lines

dipping with excess,
the mistakes are glaring.
surely you did not forget to punctuate
?
of course not,
that would be wrong.
how about accentuate     ?
REALLY!
need that be necessary?
how about Capitalize?
you know beginnings are important,
and so are names.
okay, so you’ve managed so far.
but does it make sense?
did you reread what you wrote,
and edit yourself?
heck no… should i?
Yes, you really should!
okay, i will do so next time.
until then, i’ll try to lessen
the faults to which many are lost.

Playing towards a new game

games are fun.
i like playing them.
i’m not the best,
nor am i good.
maybe i’m the worst,
but i can follow.
the rules are confusing
and always changing.
on top of that,
there are other players.
if understanding the rules
weren’t difficult enough,
now i must understand
these players.
if not at least try to be
conscious
of their playing.
i find it easiest to play alone,
but get confused with more players.
i shouldn’t get so anxious.
as far as i know,
we’re playing the same game.
each with their own
interpretation.
i must adjust my game
to encompass more than
just myself.
shit,
i think
i’ll start a
new game.
