Poem – Sorry

one thing i don’t need 
is any more apologies 

i got sorry greetin me at my front door 

you can keep yrs 

i don’t know what to do wit em 

they dont open doors 

or bring the sun back 

they dont make me happy 

or get a mornin paper 

didnt nobody stop usin my tears to wash cars 

cuz a sorry 
i am simply tired 

of collectin 

i didnt know 

i was so important toyou 

i’m gonna haveta throw some away 

i cant get to the clothes in my closet 

for alla the sorries 

i’m gonna tack a sign to my door 

leave a message by the phone 

‘if you called 

to say yr sorry 

call somebody 


i dont use em anymore’ 

i let sorry/ didnt meanta/ & how cd i know abt that 

take a walk down a dark & musty street in brooklyn 

i’m gonna do exactly what i want to 

& i wont be sorry for none of it 

letta sorry soothe yr soul/ i’m gonna soothe mine 

you were always inconsistent 

doin somethin & then bein sorry 

beatin my heart to death 

talkin bout you sorry 


i will not call 

i’m not goin to be nice 

i will raise my voice 

& scream & holler 

& break things & race the engine 

& tell all yr secrets bout yrself to yr face 

& i will list in detail everyone of my wonderful lovers 

& their ways 

i will play oliver lake 


& i wont be sorry for none of it 

i loved you on purpose 

i was open on purpose 

i still crave vulnerability & close talk 

& i’m not even sorry bout you bein sorry 

you can carry all the guilt & grime ya wanna 

just dont give it to me 

i cant use another sorry 

next time 

you should admit 

you’re mean/ low-down/ triflin/ & no count straight out 

steada bein sorry alla the time 

enjoy bein yrself
