Not All Fallen Leaves Are From the Same Tree

Critiqued in workshop
by a young they/them:

I’d used the phrase
“do the words”
to describe the act of writing and

they found it unsuitable,
suggested I use something
more sensical but

the phrase was perfect
to my ear and eye


how many other perfect things
got mistaken for errors?
