Little Things in Other Worlds

There are little things in the world,
including blocked tear ducts
and tiny tears in the carpet.
If you have petted a pet before perhaps
you will understand
the nature of petting,
which is fluent in happiness.
O how I hate a thing like "happiness"
and a suffix like ness
since i say i'm not e.e. cummings.
Of course, all of us are
e.e. cummings in a way. In the same
way that I love happiness since
there's nothing better than it.
What are you, an alien?
I doubt it.
