Happier

logic can be so tiring,
though sweet and straightforward
but it can be too exacting

and sometimes it does not work for us
it serves us a bowl of
destruction
less the imagination
hating the temporary cure of a fantasy
an illusion of glass
and light
and the provision for smell
of rare oils of lavender and
lemon

do you know that i have given too much reasoning
in exchange for the cold glass of
passivity?

i mean, just sitting down thinking about nothing
discarding the formula for living

like a bowl of clay under the sun
containing upon itself the song and caress of
sunlight

so gentle like a waft of air
around its ring

it is when i discharge what i have
when i surrender what i think i must be
that i become
fully alive


logic can be murderous
not allowing any twist of fate
on solid predictions
of this and that
with no allowance for a miracle

logic can kill us
how can it entertain other possibilities?

it is all numbers and facts
for which life is not.

i embrace possibilities now
as logic taunts and laughs

i am patient, i listen, i entertain what is hidden
from the grasp of the hands of theorems.

you see, i am relaxed, you should see the smile in my face
happier than the morning sun
the morning daisy.

Happier This Time

i


I don’t smile
You may think I am giving you
The permission
To think
That I really do not mean
What I say
With this grin on my face


ii

I stand my ground now
No backing off
On a wishy-washy
I give weight
To my prime intentions

iii

I tell the truth
I will tell you what I feel
I will tell you that I am not comfortable
With what you are doing


iv


Tell me I am silly
I will agree
I am not a little bit touchy
You are right I am
Now take the wind out of your sails


v


I do not have fingers
To point
To make you more defensive
I have only my heart
To tell you how I feel
Who are you anyway
To be blamed?

vi


I will make up a list of handy excuses
To see what is clearly going on
Before I put myself in the fray


vii


I am not afraid
To change my mind
Whenever I want to
In a minute or two
I may still have time
To tell you
That sometimes I do not
Honor commitments.

now, i will be happier

Happily...

for Ging
...happily separated
the man demands
his right for a child
and she cannot give it,
quits,
she is into knitting
and time heals and
she's into
herself into her
own womb,

for Joy,
...one plus one equals zero
for Charles finally
and today i see her blooming
happier alone,

for Lora,
...she cannot live without him
and she is into culinary arts,
that binding marriage
till forever,

and for myself,
...happily i wish for more
honesty,
let life be life
let is unfold and give me
what meaning is still available,
i am not afraid,
i can live without anybody beside me
but i choose to be bound

happily.

Happiness

after a hard day's work
you keep all things in order
pack up your things
and close the cabinets
make some notes
for tomorrow's work again

you pass by the bakery
buy some cookies
enough for the little money
you save for the day

you walk you way towards home
and there they are
meeting you
by the door in your little house
waiting

your dogs
with tails swaying
hugging your legs
eating your bread.
