Happiness

A thirty nine
Ford Coupe
would be enough
to bring happiness
I thought
as the geometry teacher
drew circles
and triangles
with chalk
on the blackboard
when my mind
could think
only of red lacquer
and naugahyde
a three oh two
fuel injected
vee eight
and speed
when I heard
the teacher speak
of beauty
while drawing an isosceles
triangle
and I chuckled
under my breath.
