The Sliding

Sliding. It happens, with time and skin and words. The whole sentences fragments. It has been in the back pocket all along. Let's not pretend. A paper clip. It's happened before. Knew that too. The wrapping up of pain into a manageable moment. A breath, bloody breaths of forgiving. Not yourself. Culpability should not be the issue. The issue is the sliding.
