Oft and Fondly

Kindness is not a heavy bargain.

Why else does the wind persist during a heatwave—

And I know for certain I love you.

I will never be mean.

I don't need to know who the grass moves for

Even when I'm not in love.

I don't need purpose to travel that far.

When the moon absconds from the sky

Dutifully every dawn,

I need not know the hands that pushed it down.


Just that you are under the sun every day

And I had something to do with it.
