Double-barreled guilt gun pointed right at my head,

Twelve-gauge memories of all I've done and said

I pull the trigger and dance the dance of fools,

Buried in a landslide of regrets, caught in whirlpools

Part-time self-loathing, holding me under, laughing, cursing

The years I pretended caught up to me, and are reimbursing

Me for long-ago sins
