O Apostrophe by David Oestreich

O Apostrophe

I meant to say thanks
for minding
P’s and Q’s
plurality, for
pulling off
without seeming
needy. Stand in,
as ever, for
the likes of I
and, oh, we’ll
need you less
and less to lose
a beat (for
instance, ever
a-changing times,
these.) Still
hang in they’re
and you’ll,
etc. Be OK.

Editor’s Note: Sometimes a poem is funny. Sometimes a poem is punny. An ode to punctuation is the way to an editor’s heart.
