No Less Alive

He’ll always take you where you want to go.
All you ever have to do is ask.
It never strikes him as an onerous incursion.
He wouldn’t bother calling it a “task.”

And now, at last, a mental light turns on,
as if illumining the contents of a shelf:
he feels as alive when he is tending to another
as he does when he is tending to himself.
