Change -- poetry by Jackson Dickie

If I woke up

in your body today

I would change

I would put on

a nice set of clothes

and apologize

I would say sorry

for things you have said

and done

then I would say


Because it would be better

than trying to fix this

already broken affair

I would feel terrible

but I can get over terrible

What I can’t survive

is watching you decide

to suffer together

while I’m left

to deal with fruits

of your problems
