for once

i apologize
for not
immediately
declaring my
absolute
devotion

for not
extracting
my dessicated
cardiac
indecency
as a tithing

but it isn’t
mine
to give
the one with
sunshine in her eyes
and wildflowers
in her smile
has it
safely held
in her
perfection

and petty jabs
or mean spirited
nonsense
does nothing
to change that

it isn’t
me.

it’s you.
