Poem up at Five South’s *One for the Road*

My poem, “Dear Autocorrect,” was published last month on Five South’s weekly humor column, One for the Road. I’m grateful to editor Kristen Simental and the Five South team for featuring this piece (accompanied by a lovely introduction and original artwork, no less!). I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed, uh, letting it write itself! πŸ˜‰

Special thanks also goes to Jazz Jaeschke for initially sponsoring (and inspiring!) this poem during my husband Robert Okaji’s September 2021 fundraiser for Brick Street Poetry.Β

  1. Such fun, Stephanie! And yes, don’t we all have to reread what we correctly wrote to make sure autocorrect hasn’t changed it on a devilish whimsy lol

  2. Made me laugh out loud money tines. And, consider anew how those instruction manuals for products made in China come to be. Thanks for writing, sharing and getting this published! Laughter for many low-mirth days.

  3. Steph I had to type β€œdorkloft” right now to see what happened and now I want to add it to my tablet’s lexicon. πŸ˜‚ I mean, I think I encounter one on the regular.
