One level deep

A very silly cartoon image: a poster is being carried by two cute cartoon robots one short and tall. There are two aliens, each with one big eye and lots of tentacles, clinging to the tall robot. There are also a cute smiling blue teddybear, a vertical stack of four cats each sitting on top of the cat below, and some smiling, floating puff-balls. The poster has a fancy Art Nouveau style frame and on it is written: "Try having sadness just one level deep. / Not hidden and denied and avoided.  Not squished down beneath the sofa cushions but bits of it keep buckling and bursting outwards. / But not recursive either. Not feeling sad about being so sad. / Try having flat sadness. One-dimensional sadness."
