Love Is Not Concerned by Alice Walker

Two sisters in an argument, in which one slaps the other hard. Her breath whooshing out, the unexpectedness of what she’s done. Her chest heaving, gasps that struggle to come out, surprise at what she could do. I am a witness to this but was powerless to stop either one. I had hoped that my love would be enough.

Love Is Not Concerned
Alice Walker

love is not concerned
with whom you pray
or where you slept
the night you ran away
from home
love is concerned
that the beating of your heart
should kill no one
