Regrets

To live a life of no regrets is noble to nature
unless you haven't returned what you stole from your friends,
admitting at least to the pain you've caused them
& the lies, and to yourself--

But torrents of selfies fall through your narrative;
enablers, your well-wishers, steer you farther from truth.
The privilege to live with no regrets,
white man, unlearned narcisist, sociopaths don't learn,

but we listen, and in all this 'unfairness,'
(the word you taught us)
it's the only thing we have
that you cannot afford,
white, digital, oilman.
