Julia Kasdorf

I learned to create
from another’s suffering my own usefulness, and once
you know how to do this, you can never refuse.

To every house you enter, you must offer
healing: a chocolate cake you baked yourself,
the blessing of your voice, your chaste touch.

-excerpt from 'What I Learned from My Mother' by Julia Kasdorf, Sleeping Preacher
