embarrassed, she typed
“how to be…”
and the internet finished it for her –

suggesting
“… prettier”
“… sexier”
“… skinnier”
“Do you mean, ‘how to have better posture’?”

she clicked each one
and became sadder still
feeling mediocre and
sufficiently crappy

because all she wanted
was some sound advice
on the question
of how to be happy.
