A Certain Look | A Poem by Donal Mahoney

Some things you can’t undo.
A remark, perhaps, you can retract
or try to with an explanation.

But a certain look can
burn forever in the mind
of its observer, a missile you

never knew you launched.
Maya Angelou was right.
Some folks can’t recall

years later what you said
but they remember instantly
how you made them feel.
