Abstract

Richard Jackson Sorrowful Ode I'm sorry for still loving you this way. I'm sorry for letting these words lunge between us the way the wind does through a tiny knot of flame. I'm sorry for letting them ferment the way the sun does each night. There's no excuse, and yet, maybe I am not so sorry for still loving you this way. I don't pay any attention to the way the filament in the bulb glows for only a few seconds when the light goes out. It doesn't matter to me that the river stores the city's lights only to sweep them downstream. Sorry or not, I don't think there is anyone left in my soul. Therefore, I am not so sorry for still loving you this way, the way a sunken boat recalls its sail. Sometimes I think the heart is a beehive someone has turned over. Sometimes it is a silkworm building its obscure cocoon. There must be a few derelict constellations with no light to show us yet. I'm sorry, but sometimes I also think you have created the night. Other times I think you must have inhaled the breath of stars. I'm sorry for
