The Poem Before This

There are poems
I write
the best key
I type
is backspace.
The poem before this
was one!

Actually, I don't use the backspace key much...there was a movie called "The Gumball Rally" in which the star said as he ripped off the rear-view mirror (and in an Italian accent), "Whatsa behind me iz notta important". :-)

Yep, the most readily exercised key on my board too is 'backspace'. Creation is often a form of the disappearance of vanities we first seek to expose, then realize all the effort was not worthy of the final product! Great post, Pat.
