because you brought home

because you brought home
the starling, broken-winged or

we are a handful
of traditions away from
tolerating one

another, another handful
from some kind of understanding

even chickens know

when it is just clear

when it is just clear

see ourselves
in one another. when
it is just muddy
enough, we may
see each
other in ourselves

because we live

because we live
and we die,

to be kind, make
sure to pass
down only the
compassionate
genes, inspire
empathy, break
patterns

between love and

between everything
and nothing that leads
to security vulnerability.

if i could spare one

if i could spare one
more sleeve on this, i’d let you
choose a tourniquet

to control the flow. you’d gauge
my comfort, saying there, there
