The Quotidian, November 9, 2010 ~ Fix Mistakes

“Fix the mistake, not the blame.”

[Source: Yoshi at poetrynight, Bellingham, WA on November 8, 2010. Yoshi told us it was out of the phonebook.]

Yoshi turned it into a one line song and invited the audience to join him in singing it.

poetrynight is a poetry organization here in Bellingham which hosts open microphone events every Monday night with featured poets from as far away as New York City and San Francisco. Check the website for podcasts.
