Cannot

I cannot contemplate

The significant suffering

That brought you here

I cannot comprehend

How dare I try to compare

For pebbles I hand to you

You let them fall between your fingers

For flowers I hand to you

You let them wilt into your body heat

For paper with letters I bring

You peel them off like the shell from a boiled egg.

So gather your nevertheless

Batter me with broken battens

Ditch my warm body in the forest

My kindness still surprises even myself.
