“Before you know kindness as the deepest thing /inside, you must know sorrow as the other/deepest thing./ You must wake up with sorrow./You must speak to it till your voice catches the/ thread of all sorrows and you see the size of the/ cloth./ Then it is only kindness that makes sense/ anymore, only kindness that ties your shoes/ and sends you out into the day to mail letters/ and purchase bread,/only kindness that raises its head in front the/ crowd of the world to say/it is I you have been looking for,/and then goes with you everywhere like a shadow or a friend.”
