HAPPINESS
(LESSON 1 - CAUSE AND EFFECT)
- for Cy Udall, Loren Greenawalt, and David Vaughn

Hume rolled over
and nudged Kant.
"Hey, bucko!
Wake up outta that dogmatic slumber!"

Hume lectured him for a while
about billiard balls and habit
and cause-and-effect,
then went back to sleep.

I donít exactly remember what he said.

It was early Sunday morning
and I was thinking about the fact
that most of the really happy people I know
are church musicians.
