The Mango Man

handing out

home grown mangoes

always gives my image

a nice boost

and what did I do

to deserve the glow

in their faces those

breathy words of gratitude?

not much threw some water

and a little fertilizer

on a tree that’s lived quite

independently over the years

but that’s how some folks

are remembered

for special kindnesses

for sharing riches

others don’t have

for me it’s just

giving away

more than I could use
