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.
