There are folks I know

who are better off than I:

fiscally and physically.


There are folks I know

who are worse off than I

fiscally and physically.


I am in the middle

it seems to me.


Comparisons get  more tricky

when you think:

socially —

mentally —



I do not claim that I  excel

in these categories

nor would I see myself



But my mind sometimes

enters these arenas

and I play with them.


Comparisons sometimes

are odious

and I best leave them be

to others — not to me.
