Read introduction

'Or Happier At Least' was written - almost certainly quickly - during a bout of intense melancholia, tinged with nostalgic longing, as I recall, sometime in 2014; although the depression swiftly lifted, destined to return some time thereafter.

Or Happier At Least

Def._2020_110_by Carl Halling03 May 2016

I was happy,
TV nightly,
As a family,

Simple pleasures,
Any Umbrellas?
Family holidays,

I was happy,
Perhaps the world was happy,
Or happier at least.
