Lessness

In the decades of this,
and driving by,
it is the first time I’ve heard
hee-haws from the sanctuary’s
fields, an ass telling us
of its suffering and pain
now lessened.

Earlier, when asked
how she was, her reply
I’m alight, now,
was lost in the calm expanse
of sea and sun all seeming
fine, the qualifier
lessening then.
