Kindness Poem by Marilyn McIntyre


the time we found
the magazine
against the trees
naked
black and white
the time
of rains
drugged baby
kitten cries
cupped hands
saved what
we could
the time the words
were gone
friends
stripped them
held them
the time when
anger lashed
devouring
you stayed
and loved
the kindnesses
the kindness
the kind
