COMMA ,' APOSTROPHE

COMMA ,' APOSTROPHE

A Poem by SHEEMA HUQ
"

prose poem

"

Comma,’ Apostrophe

 

The penitent culprit used a comma instead of an apostrophe

whilst writing their admission  to the cause of a preventable,

minor catastrophe. To behaviours which were not acceptable

to oneself, let alone the whole of humanity. A regretful, guilt

engulfed adult, bewildered by their previous autocracy, was

once recruited  in to a state run bureaucracy. Failed attempts

were relentless in addressing their former perjury, in outwitting

their reckless bouts of  intense melancholy. A grown man with

an air of fragility, and a complex past, was to embrace all the

experiences of repentance and of healing to finally last............

I cannot pretend to understand this poem at all but that is not to say I do not find it fascinating. Maybe of course THAT is the reason for my fascination...I will read it over a few times to see if I can actually come to the party....Great write

Rightly or wrongly, this reviewer finds this far more than a error of punctuation but more an error in judgement by both puppeteer and puppet, However, the points are more deftly and intellectually put than my late.night reasoning. You trap the mind into seeing more .. the art of a fine writer.

'Gripped by guilt' is what I'm reading here. The carelessness of people with power and how it effects the world, powerful write!

Really, It is an honour to have you review
I'm not even going to pretend I know what the hecks you're talking about *laugh* but I will tell you this...it was damn good. I almost got the sense it was about some higher up in a big corporation who mucked something up beyond repair and had to admit to it and, well, that you, my darling Sheema, were inspired to write this after perhaps reading the sworn statement of said higher up and noticing a typo...and, being the brilliant wordsmith you are, found THAT to be the greater offense.

Meh...of course I could just be projecting because that sounds like something I would do *laugh*

Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Always a pleasure to read your work.

Always my absolute pleasure!
I feel far too simple to give this any kind of intellectual appraisal, and so I will simply be honest.
I had to read it twelve times.
The first time left me feeling like I had been struck by lightning. By the eighth time, I had regained language and read it to myself out loud slowly a couple times, and by the twelfth time, I felt reoriented enough to type this.

I feel very much akin to the character in your poem, and perhaps it puts me too close to comment on it at all clearly. In such circumstances, I very much disapprove of selfish rambling, and so to critique, I will be brief.

I was moved.

thank you very much for the read request, I would have missed a life experience had I not read this.
