near miss

any shakespeare today i’m teasing my neighbor
heartily pounding the keys
full of my morning banana belch
does the flings and barrows of courageous sound right
asks she not really hopeful
my carriage return gets stuck all the time
and I think I’d rather be doing cervantes

sure i respond they should have given us laptops
and diapers before the entire project sinks
never mind the illiterate fleas interfering
also some alternative types like cyrillic
to improve the meager chances perhaps pushkin
will do as well as any old shakespeare

suddenly out of the blue she hits it
nutrition facts serving size one bar
servings per container six
and we stop the billions of us
we hush and stare in amazement
could it be that we have reached our destination
and this time the universe will turn out right
