Flying with One Wing

Right hand recovering from surgery.

Can’t bathe, can’t eat,

can’t button my shirt

without help from my friends.

We so value “self-sufficiency”

until we’re not self-sufficient.

Embrace the humiliation.

Be thankful, but not too much.

After all it’s what

we humans can do

and do do

for each other.
