i tried

i tried
to turn the words
around, but to be
honest, there is very little
words can
undo once done

they came straight
out of the envelope
so neatly, with a tinge
of regret – and
i could tell
that they had taken time
to iron their dark suits,
some pleated skirts, a
handful of ties, before
making this journey

i tried
to turn the words
around, but lost
eye contact as
several clusters
suddenly bent
over to wring
out their formerly
perfect attires
.
