Supposedly, Jack Kerouac

Once opined that "happiness
Consists in realizing
That it's all a great strange dream."
At least, that's what the greeting

Card I've carted around for years
Proclaims. What dreaming made me
Think that was a profound statement, I wonder, 
Coming as it did from so unhappy Jack?

Or am I being unfair to my younger self,
To him, to ask that? The realization
Could have been certifiably true,
The happiness unsustainable.
