2020-07-27 – Better Man

BETTER MAN

she nurtures better
what she has

striving forth-
trying not to spite or
covet all she
isn’t,

says hi to cranky
neighbors,

and means each smile
even if they won’t,

for she sees through
every scowl even
if they don’t.

she’s always been
a better man
than i.

with a natural shine, unpolished,
means each word while feeding wayward
birds and accepts no more than
a thank you

as long as it’s
honest.
