Seven things

Seven things you have taught me

About myself that have lived inside

And were awaken by you. Love

grows skyward the more I love like birds

carrying seeds across countries only for the

sake of confusing scientists in the way you

are numbers and I am words. I am nobody’s

nuisance, fortified with broad shoulders for

holding and a smile for helping and a will

to be forgiving so that no person can assuredly

be someone else’s nuisance. I am zigzag stripes

of comparative compassion and long quieted desire

for a compassion of my own to be selfish but kind.

Selfishly kind
