The magnitude of an apology

The magnitude of an apology

is an elusive jelly-fish, floating

 

memories in an expanse

of ever-moving sea-water

 

crystalline nothing harbored

–in an expansion of space

—-too great to have meaning

——without catching the tide

 

honesty writhes in and out

but until one tastes its sting

 

the pieces of possibility

scatter on our shores.
