When the words come faster than a brain can process them

Dyslexic words sword:
bladed from a tired brain
that is seeing backward.
Hard to avoid the shard of steel
when all you see
are mirrored images
transposed inside-out!

Can't mind Ps and Qs
when they be dead wrong,
when you can't trust your eyes.
Typed words confound spellcheck;
translation compounds insult.
Shorthand version a suffered injury.
Wish I could take a photograph

of the inside of my mind.
