Palinode

A poem in which the author retracts something said in a previous poem. A reverse Ode.

yes I said I loved you
but that was before you got pregnant

what I meant was
that you are lovely
and not that I was in love

only that I love being single

I could count the ways
you may have misunderstood me

but first
please
put down the gun
