Magic Dust

You use ‘I’m Sorry’
as if it were magic dust.

Talk to me again dust
Let me in the house dust
Let me in your heart dust
Let me in your pants dust

I’m sorry, sincere or not,
makes everything better.
What a grand product.

You aren’t even
completely sure
what it is you’re
sorry for.

You just know
it works
like magic.

And you become confused
when you find that
sometimes
‘I’m sorry.’
is not enough.

The magic dust is not invincible.

What now?
