Decrepitude, ineptitude, in a mood:
Grateful for humor that
greases buzzing blades
spattering soul’s blood
across the walls of my heart.
Sometimes, humility seems a bitter pill.
That bitterness should remind:
it has nothing to do with humble
and everything to do with clutching false pride.
Always, humility is a clear breath.
