A Song Called Happiness

A Song Called Happiness

asthmatic lungs push air between the untrained larynx

Happi–

a thick-tongued hiss between thin lips

ness

arrhythmic inhalation and ventilation

is a lot like

ribs rattling through exhalation

sorrow

a guttural groan gurgles up

let it be

waning into a whisper

you can’t make it come

sound slips

or go

away
