RECIPE FOR HAPPINESS
KHABAROVSK OR ANYPLACE
One grand boulevard with trees
with one grand cafe in sun
with strong black coffee in very small cups.
One not necessarily very beautiful
man or woman who loves you.
One fine day.
~ Lawrence Ferlinghetti, born in 1919, American poet, painter, and publisher
