How to Apologize I
"How to Apologize I" oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 20 x 20 x 1.5 inches. Ready to hang.
Cook a large fish — choose one with many bones, a skeleton
you will need skill to expose, maybe the flying
silver carp that’s invaded the Great Lakes, tumbling
the others into oblivion. If you don’t live
near a lake, you’ll have to travel.
Walking is best and shows you mean it,
but you could take a train and let yourself
be soothed by the rocking
on the rails. It’s permitted
to receive solace for whatever you did
or didn’t do, pitiful, beautiful
- from HOW TO APOLOGIZE by Ellen Bass
