HOW TO RECOGNIZE WHEN YOU HAVE BEHAVED BADLY AND BEHAVE BETTER

I put my hand on your hand. Mostly I meant to
be good. It was the shaking sky and what I wanted
to see below. It is always shaking where I am.
What do you know from the shoulder up?
I know you can only watch the plane
until you can’t. Prominent cloud features are not far
from my mind. It’s an attempt to protect
both of our mind circumferences from being mistaken
for a shark that stops swimming. And other forms
of disaster. I apologize. I would do anything
for a different look from you. Animals in the ocean
make mistakes too, maybe. And our memories.
I know memory is remarkable and unpredictable.
And I am meaning to be better with what I know.
I know now is not the time to take up flying.
You say, I’m watching you. And I say, No, I’m watching you.
I am the government on the moon and
I mean to let you forgive me.
