First I’m going to say
a prayer of thanks
and then for forgiveness in advance.
Because after that
I’m gonna kick the hell out of
my nagging self-doubting voice.
When her virtual knees buckle
I’m lobbing off her head.
And when I’m sure she’s broken down
I’m removing her victory crown
to place it on my own.
Then I’ll sit and pick my poems for
the P-A-D challenge submission.
I’ll edit them, send them and
lastly, forget it.
