The Small Pleasure of Life

a poem by

Manvi

Have you ever…
stood on the roadside and clapped at the sight of an aeroplane
fought with your little brother to stop him from channel surfing
sneaked out and thrown away your glass of milk in the money plant
danced through the rain in your balcony and realised you had an applauding audience
sang your heart out in the bathroom
tried out a recipe on your own that turned out to be an inferno
stopped talking to your best pal because she hated your favourite actor
cuddled up to a teddy at night and felt you were in heaven.
