Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 451 – An Other Side Poem

Drafts are much less forgiving in real life.

I was afraid that the thought was heavy handed

So I scribbled out that last part

But the message didn’t land without it

And that’s how we lost the money

I stepped through the lines of code and

The whole thing crashed

That’s how we lost the house

On the other side of all that we realize

That we don’t really have anything to gamble with

Now our first drafts are better
