Kobolds! word the Damn

    full bleeds and whitespace
And I must begin again on the white page.
Then late at night,
    have found my writer’s notebook.
I work so hard on my craft,
            damn them!  The word kobolds.
    placing each word with care,
                past 3 or 4 AM, when writers finally fall asleep,
    poised to deliver that special bam!
in they creep:  the damn word kobolds!
    each sentence a finely tuned instrument  
        Fonts, kerning, hanging indents—all for naught!
Kobolds. word the damn
