Apology to Angels

by David Andrés Alíx

I do not wish that my actions, to the faithful angels, be reminiscent of those of their rebel brothers

They pondered when they ought to have looked away

They nurtured a feeling they ought not have given birth to, taking what never was meant for them

The faithful ones never arrived at this feeling

When they look at me may they never be reminded of those accusers

When they look at me may they wish to be my friend
