On page 84 of Bobby Byrd's new book of poems

Otherwise, My Life Is Ordinary

 
I notice while reading a poem


about George Bush that Bobby


spells the name of Katharine Hepburn


as "Kathyrn Hepburn" —


he does it not once, but twice


I say to myself, "Now what's going on here?"


I'm sure but I google anyway because I can


and sure enough I'm right and Bobby is wrong


but I don't plan to say a word to him


or else he'll think I think his book is wrong


and all this book is is right
