& I listen

they are sad now

sorry about all of this

completely understand

they let themselves down

will talk now elliptically

about these feelings

& I listen

what else can I do?

the person they let down most

was me

leaving me to rot

to die

be beaten

& I’m not inclined to forgiveness

though acceptance

understanding

& that they too are flawed

like me

occurs occasionally

but I still don’t see them

doing anything

differently

today
