This is what it is to be unsound:
the whole reduced to holes, soul erosion.
I’m but a seed head in the grip of plows,
defenseless against this perversion
of giving. The heart domineers.
It was never weak. It does not break,
but it empties you so that you disappear-
consumed or overlain as love raids...
until it turns with sweet fortification.
Bless sudden shift, a bolster of tenderness
gifted by a one caring friend. Your rations
will return. Benevolence is boundless.
So, drain the well dry and clear off each shelf
for what we bring others also nurtures self.
