Blame and Guilt

the moments when you know
you’ve failed rise about you
as dust around a stone
dropped casually from above
a small halo of insincerity
followed by motionless clarity
where all your mistakes stand
clear in their relentless plunge
like a meteor into a darker sea
that each one in its simplicity
seems it could have avoided
its slow inevitable collapse
lost alone scattered upon the rocks
already certain you are not at fault
