10 feet off the ground

apologies are like
the silk on sand,
the shining of a blade;
a hand stretched out to
stop the elevator doors.

the sidestep;
the gentleman.
to let someone pass
on something far more valuable,
far more endurable.

an opened umbrella in a storm –

they don’t stop the rain,
but make it easier to bear the pain.
