He Wrote a Long Poem

He wrote a long poem
about his experience
leading a fall revival
and then baptizing the
converted in the creek
the following summer
and when he went to
select all and copy he
hit paste and the poem
was gone and a name
of a poet he had copied
earlier showed up on
the page. He wondered
if that poet was jealous
of his poem or maybe
she knew it wasn’t very
good and wanted to
save him the embarrass-
ment.
