A Kind of a Kind

by Perry L. Powell

A thing
is always a kind of a thing
and that’s what makes it
a thing.

As Plato knew.

And so my chair is a kind of chair.

And so you,
leaning over that chair
to kiss my forehead
reminding me of another kiss long ago,
are a kind of source of things that are
most warm in my world.

And so I
am a kind of fortunate thing
in this otherwise world.
