Throw wide the window

From deep within
a small but powerful voice
calls out and shakes its finger
in admonition:
you shouldn't have,
you should,
you never,
Pick that critic up
and lift it out;
cradle it in your arms
(however stiffly
it may hold itself);
throw wide the window
and open the door
to compassion.
