They make me happy.
The little things in life.
Like the delightful tune of microwave popcorn




Lovely............. Just lovely.

The promised ‘click’ of an iPod Touch as it unlocks.
Sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide- click! Ssssssssssslllllllllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiddddddddeeeeeee- click!
The most satisfyingly unnecessary sound ever.

The brilliantly musical clickety-clack of the keyboard as I write this very poem.
Utterly divine.

The pitter-patter of the dog’s feet as he rushes to greet me every day.
The ‘bloop’ noise of the remote control.
The snap of an opening soda can.
I pay tribute to thee, life’s little pleasures.
You always make my day worth drudging through.
