happiness is a scheme

there is a map of cypress on the wall
lips painted green and a hand to hold
if you were born there you can’t go back
                             it’s just too dangerous
                                    you have responsibilities   to us
                    and heroic is a relative term
                                        just as memory is written and then learned
                                      a sense of justice was somehow earned
                                           because stoic, too, is a relative term
