“you’re sad because you’re sad.
it’s psychic. it’s the age. it’s chemical.
go see a shrink or take a pill,
or hug your sadness like an eyeless doll
you need to sleep.
well, all children are sad
but some get over it.
count your blessings. better than that,
buy a hat. buy a coat or a pet.
take up dancing to forget.”

-margaret atwood.
