How I Feel Today

Happy
Today I feel so happy.
I love candy.
Because.
I don’t know why I’m happy.

Oh, I am happy because
I stuck myself today.

Sometimes, I feel split in half,
like a sunset with beautiful flowers and
a frost with so much horror and death.

But today I feel like dancing,
like the couple in Paris and
playing like a Jack Russell terrier
and eating much too much candy
which the hospital won’t give me.

And I am sipping a cup of tea.
