The Happiest Man In The World

you aren’t happy and you’ll never be happy
blowing up balloons with
lungs filled with pins
balancing on a tightrope over
a canyon filled with barbed wire
in a room lined with
infinite razors

that’s absurd!
said the happiest
man in the world

who cries and cries
and never stops crying

your poem is bad
and you should feel bad

why he’s juggling so many knives
no one can say
