A Sudden Realization

                      And now you say
I am like a bad split infinitive
Like the one from a title I wrote just the other day.

Am I the one who must explain himself,
Is it me who has been the one to err.
To both of these questions, yes, though I
Must claim unbeknownst-to-me intentionality.

Leave upon the whim of a reason,
How this is something stuck in your head.
Wishing to set eraser to paper to clear the mistake.

But we had our fun, you knew what you were doing.
And so did I when I pressed publish.
The written word always has the final say.
