Degrees Of Happy
by Wanda Morrow Clevenger  FollowFollow
Wanda Morrow Clevenger is a former Carlinville, IL native. In 2013 she almost died twice. This has sourered her opinion of doctors, more and hospitals. Consequently, her writing has gotten a little more intense since. That's just how it goes.

Degrees Of Happy
the NP asked
how I was feeling
with the new med
much better
I said
I’ve stopped crying
after 3½ years
the cosmos
had cocked its ears
lined the right letters
in the right order
she didn’t ask if
I felt happy, only said
she was recommending
medical marijuana
for the physical pain
I guessed her at
5 or 6 months along
there’s no competing
with that degree
of happy
so it’s just as well
she hadn’t asked
