the ladies

k.d. lang wails
"trail of broken hearts"
and I am moved
to apologize
to all of you,
from the ones that I remember,
to the ones I can't forget;
from the januaryiest,
to the Decemberer:
the ones filled with fondness,
to those brimming with regret;
the ones who were great,
and even those who made me wait:
what a long, unfinished,
ecstatic, dangerous,
morbidly fascinating
journey I've been on
with y'all.
