Or Did the Devil?

How to know
If I’m at fault?
Or would this person
Unremittingly
Find fault again?

O broken heart,
How many failings
Did I impart?

How many breakings
Were caused by me? —
Or did the devil
Stealthily deceive?

Christmas Cards

On my wall I tape the cards
Sent thoughtfully at Christmas time,
Or letters / emails printed out,
With lines of news, with lines of grief.

The people whom my path has crossed,
The people thought of, long ago,
Who made a difference in my life
Who eased my lonely heart somehow.

The people who have sculpted me;
They didn’t know it at the time.
They made a difference, then went on.
They changed my patterns, changing me.

Perhaps I do not see them now —
They’ve gone away, or I from them.
And, still, they are a part of me.
And I, perhaps, a part of them.
