Fifty Two . . .

Is homo sapiens the only species that bears its
children into impossible poverty -
Blessing from God seems inconsequential -
And that big full adult-size spirit
crammed into that innocent pint-sized bit of a body  imparts
hope in the face of hopelessness and courage
in the face of fear - yet - at the prospect
of simple company - in the presence of all that - misery -
even the random stranger - meets:
honest - unabashed - enthusiastic -
smiles of joy!
