Things That Make Me Happy (Today, 25.4.16)

I mistyped things as ‘thongs’
smartphone poetry woes. This song (Nico&Vinz – Am I Wrong) is great –
kids smiled at the frog impression
and my knees didn’t crack

things that made me happy (Monday edition)
Dr. said mindfulness makes one
a better person, I say
sing a lungful of a song, so
Dr. Dre said (nothing you idiots, Dr. Dre’s dead)

colleague caught me kickboxing an imaginary foe like a classroom ninja I laughed so hard I bit my tongue
Even my blood tastes of good health
Dem moves girl, what else?

being called the little spoon
imagining looking at my son, and
A/C. Summer in Hong Kong doesn’t

make me happy, though
wearing a red dress does, plus I say “if you’re going to take up space, why not make it brighter?” Further: John Legend singing the word ‘underwater’
gives me shivers
or is it wedding fever?

It’s ten thirty. Let me count the ways I have loved thee, world, this morning: eleven. What else?

the day is shy and the man in the orange turban let me onto the bus first, for a dozen.
