What Artist is ever Happy?

What artist is ever happy?
They’ll think something wrong
If I smile
So I just write and think
With bluesy thoughts a while.
While I brood a light bulb flashes
My head is full of life
And I will cut a slice of it
With my poetic knife
I Pry at thoughts like oysters
To open up their shell
Rarely but when I am lucky
I find a jeweled pearl
To share with those that cared a bit
or read my poems aloud
For they were gifts given me
To share in private or in a crowd
And so if I am not smiling
In Facebook or red bubble
Please don’t try to cheer me up
It’s just not worth the trouble.

But if you bring me ice-cream
Or even chocolate cake
Or sweet delights to pass my night
Like the ones your mammy ’s bake
Then a smile of satisfaction
Will crawl across my face
And I will savor every crumb
Clean the plate without a trace
So you who come to feed me
Whether its my belly or my mind
Can take a picture of my smile
For you have been so kind.
