a solstice wish or if you prefer
a Christmas wish to comprehend
the depth of this I plea:
to anyone anywhere who speaks
of any past infraction by me I say:
If you’re happy with your life today
it took the summation of the parts
that got you here.
If you are not happy, remember
the fault line has an expiration date be it
teacher, mother, father, or any other
authority figure you encountered
along “your” way.
Having sifted thru the ashes
again and a few times
I do here by wish for
“her version” vs. “his version”
etc. et al –
I’m in the Here and Now
at least striving
to make it last…
Join me here?
Join me now?
