Five Exclamations

Lydia Cortés

I have been refunded
Remember that I
Hoped to be able yet
I have a few days off
To be fertile
About the same permanence
That appeared to me as
The ghost of things future
Scenes of diaphanous worry

Happiness is not for the
Depressed it’s not in
The cards nor in their heads
Happiness is one of those
Weird over the top emails
With at least 5 exclamation marks
When you’re in no mood
