THERE IS A HAPPINESS THAT MORNING IS by Mickle Maher:
A couple, scholars teaching William Blake,
Engage in coitus on a campus green.
The fallout from this public act may break
The lovers up, destroy their jobs, and mean
An end to all the happiness they’ve had.
In lectures to their students, these two vent
Feelings on love, on death, the good or bad,
And ire ‘gainst the college president.
Laughter, drama! Love might win the day
In Mickle Maher’s modern poem play.

Cez says: “Mickle Maher is betting on the idea that poetry is not only the language of love but also that of humor, humanity and happiness. His story may be literary love, but there’s nothing academic about it.”
