The heart is a warehouse

constantly receiving shipments
of sadness and sorrow.

So we slap on some of those
Happy Happy Joy Joy stickers

and soon as you can say it
those suckers are snapped up

as if all folks need is a little
smiley face to stare back at

from the confines of their
sparse apartments.

spirits lifted
the wake
he wanted
