"Happiness" as written by and King Britt....
(spoken)
Welling up from within, clawing away, eating up the insides; happy heart, broken into bits, bleeding and happy; dissected happiness, wriggling in individual pieces on the floor, secreting happiness that attaches itself to whatever there is.

Parasitic happiness, sucking like a leech in the happy neck, sucking out happiness, sucking out happiness; ripped away from the neck, stepped on, stomped on, happiness oozing out like pus; yes, happy, happy, happy like a clam with its legs cut off, limping along the beach, opening and closing, clopping and clodding, oysterless, pearlless, peerless, puerile.

Empty happiness, echoing in the hollow happy halls, bouncing through the empty happy house; happiness all around: ankle-deep, knee-deep, neck-deep; drowning in the morass of heavy, happy sludge; happy quicksand, pulling in the happy corpses-to-be, bathing, cleansing, purifying, perfecting, self-actualizing, fully realizing; happiness lapped up and licked up like spilled milk spoiled.

Happiness that would kill its own mother for a quarter; soft, white, luminescent happiness, like a light bulb broken in the happy lamp: turn it on, turn it off, turn it on; happy dark, happy light, happy dark; darkness like a blanket, covering, smothering, comforting, enveloping happiness: snuggle up; keep cool and warm. Happy sleepiness, happy sleep, happy happy dreams.
