I made a mistake
once upon a time
and only recorded half
of a poetic conversation. 

When, years later, I tried
to retrieve the other half,
I learned it got lost
in Katrina. Self-obsessed, 

self-centered, just plain
selfish. But regrets/amends
don’t bring back a thing
that is irretrievably lost.

Won’t make that mistake
again on any level.
