Red Pencil

by Marge Kelemen

Here she comes
Red pencil in hand
Menacing all in her path
Sharpened every morning
That darn red pencil
Sharpened to an almost lethal point
That darn red pencil
She wears it down with circles & slashes & underlines
Filling in missing punctuation
And correcting misspellings
Rearranging words more to her liking
I'm seeing red
Make red marks on my paper
As many as you like
But you can't rearrange the words in my head.
