Double Depression

Is what she said.

Are you fucking serious

wasn’t a question but a relief, a laugh

I longed to betray some anger or frustration

at this ironic ice cream flavor nickname of my sorrow

but was too overjoyed to discover it had a name

too grateful that someone else had

at some point in history, looked

at this, and decided,

we’ll call it double

depression.
