Dyslexia by Tori Campbell

sometimes the words jump around
and the letters are backwards
when I read out loud
I try to keep up
with the moving words
as though they’re on a treadmill
but my pace has to match its speed
immaculately 
but usually I fall
too fast or too slow
and even if it’s just right
my mind was so focused on not messing up
I don’t know what I read
