I am certainly smarter than myself
for I have observed what I’ve just written
and know better:
Oh – foolish, naive, pen-in-hand scribbler self!
I would abruptly abridge myself
if I did not so often catch myself by surprise.
Just when I think I’ve pinned myself down,
I sprout wings and flutter out of reach.
