One day he noticed
how many actions were easy.
For instance, he could effortlessly
take a single tissue
from the box in his bathroom.
It was also simple
to slip on his shoes,
raise a piece of toast to his lips,
and wash warm water
over his breakfast dishes.
Later, as he stacked cans
on the shelves at the store,
he noticed that the cans
sat with ease
wherever he placed them,
that customers were pushing
the silver carts in a painless way,
and that sunshine
was smoothly spreading the street
with its light.
