I never understood why people
could not accept apologies.
Until I heard how bitter they sounded
coming off of your lips.
I always found people made themselves vulnerable
when opening up and admitting they were wrong,
until I realized the way your lip curled
the way it does when you lie.
I hope it tasted as rancid to you
as it sounded to me.
I hope you choke on your apologies.
Because they don't mean shit to me now.
