THOUSAND SHADES OF GRAY
FILLING THE VOID 1,000 WORDS AT A TIME
Get Happy by Beach Sloth

As my life gets more difficult

With more responsibilities and considerably less money

I get happier

Not sure why this is happening

Feel I should be more depressed

But then I see sunshine

Eat ice cream

Ride a bike

See squirrels fucking in the street

Listen to water

Smell the sea

And somehow know

Without being told

That everything is fine

That my lack of possessions is good

No money

No problem

I see myself

Living in a cave

Eating out of trash cans

Lacking Wi-Fi

Furiously writing on public library computers

Because writing furiously is the only thing I know how to do

Watching other people look up cell phones

As I think about soda cans

And how one soda can

Represents a nickel

That nickel is the happiest thing it can be

It is happy

Like me

Let us hug

Because hugging is free

Your hugs like me

And I like you so very much
