Poetry: i don’t need an excusing –Scott Jacobs Jr.

i don’t need an excusing

i need a forgiveness

there is a difference
like between a pond & a lake
though way less specific

not a forgive me father
—i think of ‘origins’
more than ‘originals’

i believe in sundials
slowing down the earth

i was an emergency
not a miracle
when i came kicking

& i am going to trade every hour
for one more hour
