My Apologies

Everyday,
Walking,
Through the hallway,
Down the aisle,
Across the street,
On the sidewalk,
Up the stairs,
Down the stairs,
Anywhere.

Everyday,
A trip,
A bump,
A push,
A slammed door,
An item thrown to the ground.

Everyday,
An apology,
A ‘sorry,’
A ‘pardon me,’
An ‘excuse me.’
 
Everyday,
Without a second thought.
