dark poet who loves to laugh

forgiven

the surer i am i am right
the more likely i am
to be making an ass
of myself

i know that
have proven it to myself
how many times
yet need again to call to apologize

implacable, growing hot between my long ears
should signal me that i’m at it again
but doesn’t always
and yet

how often and often
in the coolness of later
family and friends will smile – tolerantly
and tell me i speak fine bray

as a retired physician, i have needed to talk with many persons about end of life. And then I cared for my husband for more than five years.
