Sadness: A jolly take?

Take sample of sadness
on a glass slide
Pricking
a fearful ‘tree’
And zoom it, on
A microscope

These unseen corpuscles
jostle together
on a transparent slide

What can we say
of inside –
Veins, that
channel our worries

They say
Thickness
is a measure of density
and
Agonize me
to clot my blood,

and of these samples –
A jolly take?
