“Beta Reader”

Beta reader,

Meter feeder,

Readying at the line.

Manuscript,

Dog-eared, ripped,

Sharpie red line strikes.

Jealousy, becomes this me,

As i peruse your lines.

What works?

Be sure,

You won’t find out.

Secret by design.

Beta reader,

Yes, indeed sir.

No value added sense.

I’ll mislead you,

Spotty review,

Envious elegance
