Challenge from Allison Berryhill: write an apology poem in the style of William
Carlos Williams’ “This is Just to Say”

this is just to say 
i should have been there
more days
you battled
that monster
when lewy body
played peek-a-boo:
cruel moments it
exposed the raw truth 
unremorsefully,
it torched memories
it kidnapped joy
it robbed futures
