My Apology to Marjorie

I can’t even use your language to say sorry

Your Eckleburg eyes framed by glasses twice their size

Send unconditional light and love despite my fuck ups.

I know my affairs with Didi and Gogo left you ignored and

Marjorie I tried to love myself enough

to stay in a loveless marriage for you.

I thought I was a phoenix, but I may have just

Lit myself on fire and left my baby girl

To watch as this pile ashes smolders.
