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.
