Edit Sober

Inner Child’s too young
for pouring wine over,
bathing her in backwash
of too many words--

But she’s not too slight
to bear the weight
of mountains of apologies
for writing while drunk.

  1. Young and very very strong. Whether apology or witnessing the need for more than one, this poem carries power.
