About that…I’m really sorry
I never meant to hurt your feelings
My mouth got ahead of me
I didn’t think, I didn’t imagine
any of the consequences
Now the words are out there
in the universe and I can’t take
them back, can’t throw them in
a black hole, can’t bury them
under ice, can’t burn them in fire
I messed up but I want you to know
I’m sorry for adding to the trash
and debris and ugliness that’s
out there. I took a wrong turn.
About that…I’m really sorry.
