HEART SURGERY

What was said was said.
No taking it back.
Once the sword went in.
Time machine deactivated.

Now we’ve got a mess.
On our hands.
Across our lands.
Jerk out arrows;
suture wet wounds.
Before it’s too late.

Before it’s too late.
How a trillion mistakes
of timing or execution summon
grim justices of contrition.
