St. Justin

He was my earliest apology.

I am sorry for that time I drove

my father’s van to the hill,

got out, and let all those mosquitoes

give me what I was sure

I deserved.

I have since discovered darker

corners of my heart, raging bends

in my rivers. The water rushes over

stones that will never be smooth.
