Give me your freshest handkerchief
Set aside a seat on your bench
Buy an extra ice cream cone or warm cider

Reserve your compassion for those more handsome than yourself.
Those whose hair is softer; whose eyes are brighter.

Hundreds will line up to care for the saddest voices.
Be brave enough to look elsewhere.
Be strong enough to hold the hand of a child whose only tragedy is perfection.
