he spelt it wrong, your name
first time around and then
he faltered with the punctuation
but did he get the meaning wrong?
or did you notice only such things
like grammar, but not the lyrics of the song?
you spelt it right, his name
every time you did so
and never faltered with the commas
or with the million rules of grammar
but did you convey what your heart said?
or just noticed how much and where he erred?
maybe you both got it wrong
first time around and every time since
and maybe you spoke on different planes
and thereby thought about different stakes
maybe you were an adjective as in the thesaurusand he was just a spelling mistake...
