“even if it was just an honest mistake” by Sasha on her couch

It was an honest mistake
the graze against the belly
of the hummingbird
the beast
the open mouthed devil
It was a beautiful chaos
the storm whipping hair
across cheeks
across water
across history

Here we are
gazing into the barrel of the gun
toe to toe with destruction
eye to eye with the open sky

I don’t like the taste
of apology
a penny
on my tongue
