  1. On Regret

    Regrets are best laid to rest at the funeral pyre;
    final words, eulogized at the graveside of self-loathing,
    singing hymns of forgiveness to ourselves, canticles
    sung by candlelight, the wafts of incense will carry our
    last contrition’s to the ears of a merciful universe

    Setting fire to the regrets, scribed on paper, behold
    the ashes, a sage for the soul, embers char them in
    golden collection plates, wafting upward our humble
    contrition’s, when souls set free their every smudge;
    regret salivates to jail you in its claws of recrimination

    Life begs for retribution;
    unclench the fist that squeezes
    regret, letting it fall from our hands
