Regrets (old debts)

inspired by the painting “Steve Martin’s Impending Regret” by Mark Tavares.

regret’s a many
things,

atrophy under
finger band,

who we were or
hadn’t yet
been,

watching scene not
meant for eyes
,

shower curtains torn
beyond their
mend,

regret’s having true sight
reflect light back
through life

conceived by once
darker man.
