saying sorry

I am sorry

your mother’s

not talking to me again.

I am sorry

for her complaints

on the phone.

I am sorry

for my inadequacies;

an inability

to confer on

the GP, chiropractor,

wilful daughters-in-law,

silky terriers,

high blood pressure

and invasive

creepers.

I am not

sorry

she won’t be here

this Christmas.
