apology

I shed
my skin more readily
than I do
a grievance. Or
a grudge.

It is not
an attractive
characteristic,
I know.

I concede that much.
I concur.

But,
coming out my hole
like
invertebrates, generally,
tasting the air,
I do my best to let
it
slide.

Coming from my drunken reading of this - this titled 'apology' - lemme say:
(mangled paraphrasing) "Nothing is ruined. Everything is forgivin."

I'll drink to that.
