It Makes Me Happy

It makes me happy to hear
that Pablo Neruda also wrote
a truck load of bad poems —
most of them great windy tributes
to Communism.

It’s like finding
a five dollar bill in an
old comic book from childhood
or opening an Almond Joy bar
and discovering an extra almond on top.

Makes me
all wiggly inside.
Really.
