autocorrected.


I want to wow a poem the way I wow on my phone then I don't check types and 
autocorrected or st heat not sprockets and things come out unfiltered like the 
time u meant to type "I have a vague recollection" but my phone changed it to 
"vaginas recollection" and my courageous said in her reply "vaginas are missteps 
creators and ironside do have telecoms. "

if iv wow poems the way iv type before I check for wipes or to much of the truth 
maybe more of my v work spills be unfiltered though not Beverly understandable.
