.minor collision.

i write about the

slight bump

because i cannot write about the past

the one i never had

a little knock is nothing

a reminder to take more care

to look out for others

i apologise for intruding into your space or did you come into mine?

is there damage. will it remove with spit and a wipe

of your sleeve?

i am so sorry

i do not remember that time

yet

i will remember your details

to make reparation

or shall we just spit on it and wipe

shake hands?

i am so sorry

perhaps we can meet again some

other time

without collision

over a coffee?

later we talked it over on the bus

which came to a skid suddenly

i imagined it was a cat crossing

we are given the theme initially

then things change

incredibly
