Most of the time, my dyslexia doesn’t really get the better of me. I thank spell check for that one, but today as I was scrolling through the interwebs, I clicked on what I thought said, “18 I’m sorry for your wife poems.” However, when I started reading, I didn’t get the wonderfully snarky poems I had expected. I got lines like, “The phrase “I’m Sorry” you may agree/Has turned into a social amenity/We say “I’m Sorry” more than Brenda Lee.” I don’t even know who Brenda Lee is.
Needless to say, the site was actually titled “18 I’m sorry poems for your wife.” I was incredibly disappointed. So I thought I would challenge you guys and gals to a little contest. Let’s write 18 I am sorry for your wife poems. Best 18 will be published in the next Fermata Publishing Chapbook. I am not setting a deadline for submissions because I don’t know what a response I will get, but I will post when I think I am done.
(And just to be more gender friendly, I will also accept I’m sorry for your husband poems as well. We’ll call the chapbook, “18 I’m Sorry for your Spouse Poems”)
