POEM: the kindness of this world

the kindness of this world

because after the tears
                                    stop

and the shaking subsides

there are still people
waiting

at the other end
                            of the phone

The title of this poem is another permutation of this, which morphed into this, which is where I first saw it. I haven’t read either of those pieces yet, because I wanted to write this just using the title as a response to something that happened tonight.
