30/30 Day 11: Wake Up Apology


Wake up apology
Crawl from sleeping mouth
To beleaguered ears
What else can be offered to the wronged

If only we all could be as rested
On the morning after lashing
When best intention meets opposition
And solution — an olive branch burned

Apology
Do you come with company
Change
Or are you Easter chocolate-bunny hollow
A sickening sweet
Bound to hurt the whole

How do I hold you
Apology
With arms weak
Carrying the weight of misunderstanding
Bloodshot eyes strain to see the point in
“Im sorry”
After a night of chasing thoughts
While you sleep on it

Be an answer
Be reason
Be more than
“My Bad” over mint and earl gray
Be strong
Double-shot espresso

A truth in the morning.
