Darling face and hands -

I am sorry to have
made such fools of you
in public.
Forgive me, mouth, Pie-Hole,
for the simpering agreements,
the affected giggles,
the gummy silences.
Eyes, accept my apologies, both of you.
From now on,
do not pretend
you don't see almost everything.
I am sorry to you too,
fingers,
for the helpless way
you had to flap and twist,
and for keeping you
from dirt
and interesting gymnastics.





I found this poem whilst reprinting #2 (see, I'm actually working on my list). It's old, but just as important to me as ever. I thought I'd show you all.

Tegan and Sara. Seriously.
