Mistakes, I’ve Made a Few
My car is in line to leave the ferry. Is this a mistake? What are mistakes?
My twenty-two year old daughter whines: “Your mistake was leaving daddy.”
My husband, caught up in an endless cycle of work and flirting with skirts, didn’t immediately notice I was gone.
I fell into like with a visiting professor whose intellectual discussions stimulated me, freed me; I only touched his mind.
My dog, panting next to me, doesn’t care as long as I’m near.
I see him. His nasty words come crashing down as well as twenty-five years of roller-coaster love; time to choose.
