Poem 14 of 30

Tenderness.

Sharpen it.

Salt it.

Fortify it with your spit.

Lay it flat across your bed.

Pick it up.

Fold it square.

Carry it in your breast pocket.

Air it out.

Iron it.

Beat it like a rug.

Twist it til it thins like a thread.

Floss your teeth with it.

Stitch your heart on your sleeve with it.

Use it everyday.
