mistake – 2 poems

mistake

hand clasped over mouth
she cannot see
my instant and intense
regret.
dial-tone answers
my hateful words,
and I cannot take it back.

Sky Dancingmiss-step

step by step
counting the turns
spinning once, twice,
three times…
wait! too many!
catch up to my partners,
but it’s too late.
in trying not to deviate
i’ve made enemies
in this political dance.

poetic asides

For today’s prompt, write a mistake poem. I guess the poem itself could be a mistake, if you want to go that route, but it could also be a case of mistaken identity, a clerical error, or some other mishap. The narrator of the poem could be sorry for making the mistake or upset that someone else made one. – Robert Lee Brewer
