A stash of strangled
“I wills”
“I wishes”
“I could haves”
and
“sorrys”
all the punctuations in the right places
exclamation, exclamation exclamation!
sweet, maddening regrets

never take commas for granted –
they will ruin you
pause you break you interrupt you
make “ ” in the air
to show *you* didn't say anything stupid
missed out the apostrophe;
don't anticipate –
nothing more to come,
but
nothing short of a grammatical catastrophe,
capital letters only for proper nouns
and god,

and Now
Full Stop.
