The Apology that Drooped Like a Tree

Only after the island
Everything untangled and free

To be seen
I stretched nets

I could have been like

That would have been like
When a coconut almost falls

Really I said
Get in my mouth

Because I felt sorry
Like a ray of light

Zaps through the water
Into the reef

Not to aggrandize my pity
But that light looks like

The finger of God
Touching the coral and the fish

Go neon bright
The eye the net

The trees were basically pregnant
You in the mouth

God in the mind
Fruit fell through the night

Then later untangled and empty
Or sorry or free

The whole drowned sky
Lit up and doubted me
