Waiting For Happy


Bring happy, I shout.

You ask, One with capital H?


Spring lights up doves 

on our ledges.

Windows when opened

gleam with

spiders’ pride-works.


A truck of tar backs in the alley.

Its back-up alarm fancies 

a medley of songs died in youth.


Bring, I say.

It or him? You question.
