launder

guilty
until
proven
innocent


someone
else's mistakes


remembered
and
relived


held against
myself
and
you


patterns
repeating

unspoken
in
time


only
seen
in
still pictures

replaying
in my mind


i
will
hold myself
and
you
accountable

for
the mistakes
of
another


i
will
condemn
us both
to
Hell

until
i
can....


forgive.



incomplete
in its
entirety


my absolution
is
lacking
complexity
and
depth


easier seen
as
redemption


mea culpa


unwavering
and
unholy
and
unending

not finished
in a single
act
or moment...

carried out
day to day
in a
karmic
rinse cycle.
