a small collection of apologies
– by x.c.
dedicated to you, and also to me.
to my mother
to the moon
to the sun that used to be mine
to you (and to me too)
to my light
i am so full of apologies that i
choke on them. they spill from my lips
like flowers, like fruits of my labor.
(accept them please don’t throw them back
in my face i’m sorry – )
