Words, words, WORDS.

Gnawing, hacking
Slicing
Tap, tap, tap
and the author wields a sword
Delete, backspace
Replace
Unwanted words must disappear

 

And I dub thee “editing poetry”.

I wrote this poem in September 2014, while I was buried under the mountain of edits. I needed a break and ended up writing a spot of poetry to break up the lengthy narratives in my head. I wouldn’t be surprised if more of this appeared in the future.

I also have to thank William Shakespeare for the title. They capture what it was like being in my head at the time, and pretty much every time I edit.
