It isn't as easy as it once was to give everything away. Look around at the muchness of stuff.
You fill your life with it
and then seek to simplify
by foisting it all onto others.
When the entire populace is overburdened
who will volunteer to take what you are now so eager
to give away?
Best to leave.
Start over with nothing
but redwing blackbirds
shot like arrows from near copse
to far copse across the bright green meadow.
Let that sight suffice,
but you can also take in
the sound effect
of their trills and whistles when they light.
Or hearken to the enthusiasms of the robin
at the tip-most bough of the maple.
That song alone is worth it all.
Start with these and let the rest go.
