A Little Kindness

Would be nice. Humans
Do a lot of harm
To others and each
Other, but that’s not
Our hard part, that’s not

The worst part. It’s worse
That indifference
Creates destruction
All unintentioned,
And worst that kind acts

Can backfire. Backfire.
Know where that comes from?
You loaded and aimed
And your charge blew up
In your hands and eyes.

It’s not adequate.
We need an image
More apt. Our kindness
Is more like the need
For water. Deserts

May wait years for rain
Then lose lives to floods.
That even goodness
Necessitates some
Real harm, that’s the worst.
