Forgive Me, Muse

Forgive Me, Muse

Bless me, Muse
for I have sinned.

I intentionally
misplaced 4 commas
7 times,
stole an entire line
from Shakespeare
(like he’d know),
resorted to using
2 adverbs
and 3 clichés,
rewrote Frost’s
most famous poem
(I like mine better).
I defied Webster
80 times last week,
and I lied
in every poem
I’ve written this year,
and last year,
and all the years
I confess
I regret
none of it.
forgive me, Muse.
