COUSIN

oh cousin,

I know the depth

of your heart

as the tides swirl

within life’s

indifferences,

as you salvage

a smile, with two

steps forward,

shouldering strength

in the evidence

of good works,

blessed to you

to give away,

with so much more

stored within

the engine

driving your

soul
