"The Mistake" by Hunter Madsen

"The Mistake"

TITLE - "The Mistake"
WHERE - El Cajon, California (2017)

See the poem by James Fenton, which begins:

"With the mistake your life goes in reverse./ Now you can see exactly what you did/ Wrong yesterday and wrong the day before/ And each mistake leads back to something worse/ And every nuance of your hypocrisy/ Towards yourself, and every excuse/ Stands solidly on the perspective lines/ And there is perfect visibility."
