I wish to be misunderstood,
that is,
to be understood from your perspective.

- Bill Knott "wrong"

The summer before I met my fiance, I bought a book of poetry and read them before bed. I had just read this poem a few days before my first date with my now fiance and for some reason it has always stuck - a poem that I memorized by accident. There is something sly and subversive about this poem and I like it.


  1. thanks! I'm always thrilled and honored when anyone posts a verse by me on their space——


    all my books of poetry can be downloaded FREE from this page:



    if you liked "Wrong", you might like some others in the book called "Websters Official Anthology of American Poetry" which collects all my short poems from four decades...

    thanks again
