She breaks into your bay, gesticulations
signaling glee at her newfound success.
In her singsong asks you to have a hand
in her happiness. Soaked in your situation
you listen, sense nothing calls for celeb-
ration. You must know she wants you
not to cut into her cheer but share acute-
ness of her sorry hour.
