humanity eats turkey
and says things like, “yes yes, of course
tomorrow, i promise”
so i choose humility instead.
humility eats tofu
and sings what it says in humdrum wordless tones like
“Laba laba lu laba lu … laba laba oo oo baby oo”
so I sing along as if
i know the words
Humanity laughs at me
because my toes are utterly perfect.
i denounce humanity
and wear a cardigan.
I say things like, “It’s always perfect
here in the neighborhood.”
Humility is disgusted, but still
my toes are perfect.
I shouldn’t have said anything. I should have just sung
the blue balloon
the blues.. you loon
the blues… I lie.
Humanity is a prick, but damn, I love it.
