    Don't feel sorry for me.
    I am a competent,
    satisfied human being.
    be sorry for the others
    who
    fidget
    complain
    who
    constantly
    rearrange their
    lives
    like
    furniture.
    juggling mates
    and
    attitudes
    their
    confusion is
    constant
    and it will
    touch
    whoever they
    deal with.
    beware of them:
    one of their
    key words is
    'love.'
    and beware those who
    only take
    instructions from their
    God
    for they have
    failed completely to live their own
    lives.
    don't feel sorry for me
    because I am alone
    for even
    at the most terrible
    moments
    humor
    is my
    companion.
    I am a dog walking
    backwards
    I am a broken
    banjo
    I am a telephone wire
    strung up in
    Toledo, Ohio
    I am a man
    eating a meal
    this night
    in the month of
    September.
    put your sympathy
    aside.
    they say
    water held up
    Christ:
    to come
    through
    you better be
    nearly as
    lucky.
