atonement – poem

March 23, 2013

I guess I laid an egg
by what I’ve done
This sweet chocolate Easter bunny
hollow atonement proffered excuses

Empty like the Easter eggs as children
we poked, blew clear
painted with uncertain hand
fragile as morning’s innocence.

I can only ask that you
peering beyond the superficial
understand the season
forgive what cannot repaid
