to give the stranger a smile,
to give your friend a single grain
of the love over which you keep such meticulous account?
what of yours will lessen if you unlock yourself
to let someone else gaze upon your treasure?
you were only given anything
because Someone thought
you knew what to do
with these gifts
give away whatever does not fit comfortably in your existing cupboards
and watch how heavy you become in the corpulence of blessings accumulated
whatever you keep beyond what you need is
