“We’re Sorry”

7 Jan

“We’re Sorry”

For the balloons

for all the two-step Tuesdays

for raisins and the brain

for hairs in your milk

for striding diets and tides to rip you

we’re sorry for your bras and bandits

scampering, the shuddering moons

I’m sorry for daffodils

lipstick smiles fading in the soil

I’m sorry for all the gifts and sincerity

but worst of all the humility

crowns in the glue of envelopes

licked by the tongues of cat queens,

cat purses, cat desserts, cat loneliness

the aimless silkiness of cat purses,

tender buttons: it was all just a lark

and some lost hawk

circling in winsome degradation.
