things could be worse

Your problem?
Well, one of them—
You want life to
Be story-shaped
And
You’re very particular
About the kind of story—
quirky as an indie film,
but not the dark, cynical kind.
You demand events
that build towards
happy endings.
Sure, you allow for
tinges of tragedy and loss
but they are flecks of black paint
placed just so on the canvas,
there to highlight
the important shapes
of lighter moments.
