‘MY REFRAIN’ ORIGINAL POETRY BY ALLIÉ MERRICK MCGUIRE

NO THANKS

I’m dedicating this piece to an acceptance of errors - those I’ve made in the past and those that I’ll make in the future. Regardless of when they occurred, I accept that I am human and innately will error from time to time. This piece is also dedicated to my recent diagnosis of MS - my acceptance of the condition, all the things it changes, and all the things it doesn’t.

I don’t feel the need To bind words In an electronic stat In a word document Or excel workshee No cells for my syllables Than you very muc I’m touche If my words not carefully spelle Are misspelle I forgive myself for tha And applaud my attemp To employ applaudable vocabular In a grammatically simplistic societ If I’m to be called the oddit

I’m od And that’s fin These words are min I own thes So pleas If you need a wor But a fancier versio Control Shift F7 Will provide a conversio No need to open a book to fin Words not networked to your min Let your fingers do the talkin Click, click, click, clic Put down the pape Toss out the Bi

Your quic Not m I’m slo I write as I g And I don’t feel the nee To bind words In an electronic stat In a Word documen Or Excel workshee No cells for my syllables Than you very muc I’m touched

NO THANKS
