Arrow of time, reversed

These criminal acts
I absolved preemptively:
future forgiveness.


Seven Years

You gave me these marks,
tattoos I never asked for;
I’ve broken my mirrors.

Party of five

When is it okay
to introduce your new girlfriend
to your ex-husband
and your two children?
I don’t know about when,
but probably the aquarium is a good where.
Your girlfriend will get bonus points
for insisting on sitting in the splash zone
at the dolphin show.
