If every excuse me
evokes an instant
apology, let this softly
To change your thoughts, your must first change your actions
Tend to small things with
great care. Rocks lodged in dry earth.
Wounds too deep to parse.
Mantra with consideration
Consider her blind
spots. The space between knowing
and wishing to know.
