Tis my

blood type,
The common type-O....
It's what even Poe 
stumbled over often
thus the drinking, drugs,
and the raving,
that became
The Raven.

It is even found in
the word poetry...
POeTrY contains

TYPO less the er 
that is human.

It turns editors
into predators,
as they pore
over all those
missing letters
like some twisted
wheel of fortune.

It occurs when

our fingers fly
faster then 

our brains
over the keys
to poetic bliss.

and when our heart

spills passion

before it's fashioned

by our thoughts

There is a

spell check
to cash in on,
a bank full

of corrections,
one can draw from.

But you can

still go
bankrupt in

the catastrophe
of the apostrophe
and just how

it's deposited in

*it's* accounting

of words.

So beware

of the typo,
the TYPhOid
of most poets

that's far too

often hid in plain

view for all to see,
when the poem is done.

A poem that is  

not quite ready

for prime time.
