Delusion

The drive to happiness—

delusion, confusion about

the human being in the world 

of troubles, of sorrow, of laughter,

of pain and pleasure in tasting

all that is thrown on this plate

of mixed offerings on the table

of sour and sweet that comes

one day and not the next—

no, not the next in the grand 

time of eternity’s bleak feast.
