Prose

Ode One
I don't feel 75.
I am 75.
I look 75.
I behave 75.
I don't feel 75.
Ode Two
They don't know my history.
They don't know my future.
I tolerate their ignorance.
They accept mine.
Ode Three
The Truth eludes me.
The Utility awaits me.
Ode Four
The bland tier sees a servant
The blood tier sees a buffoon
The blind tier sees a fool
The blessed tier sees wonders
