[happy.]

He can’t be happy when there is so much suffering in the world
She can’t be unhappy if he is unhappy

She wants to be happy
He doesn’t feel entitled to be happy

She wants him to be happy
And he wants her to be happy

He feels guilty if he is happy
and guilty if she is not happy

She wants both to be happy

He wants her to be happy

So they are both unhappy

He accuses her of being selfish
because she is trying to get him to be happy
so that she can be happy

She accuses him of being selfish
because he is only thinking of himself

He thinks he is thinking of the whole cosmos

She thinks she is mainly thinking of him
because she loves him
