the static of transmission, lost

the ripping of the page
when half the value's twice the cost
one's arms fly up in rage
.
it seems that when you've left, it's right
and what i write's not wrong
please take off like a kite
you put the "so ?" into "so long"
.
the brimming glass that overturns
the spilling jar of ink
the aftermath that one discerns
when red evolves from pink
.
the more the letters get reversed
the less the magic spell
and then the mood is cursed
you put the "fair" into "farewell"
.
a shadow when the sun is bright
a crack that mars the bell
a step into a haunted night
a doorway into hell
.
life curls up in a question mark
as "O" turns into "Y"
excuse my next remark
you put the "good" into "goodbye"
