DAY 20 PA PROMPT -MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE -POEM 4 - APOLOGIES

Wednesday, April 20, 2011 3:42:30 PM (GMT Daylight Time, UTC+01:00)
Apologies

I realized when I rolled
The paper carefully
With all written so precisely
Each word pain stakingly chosen for posterity
For beauty,
For Muse-icality
Writ in perfect penmanship
I realized as I rolled
The finished paper
That the bottle
This only bottle
Finally found
Was cracked
And listened as
The Muse laughed
And I in frustration
Threw it anyway
Into the rolling sea
Away
