A Crying Time

laugh loud
laugh long

laugh while the angels sing
sad songs of the heartbreak resurrection

laugh as their tears tear dry burning burrows
down swollen cherub cheeks

and laugh at their broken winged decent
to the heaven of their hell

when you hear the bell
laugh at its off time toll

laugh while the heads roll and
while the children scream
from the midnight sun
rising black through
the poison purple air that breathes
like the serrated edge of
a murder mad kitchen knife

laugh loud
laugh long

look in the mirror’s scattered shards and
laugh and
laugh and

laugh yourself

    It has been rightly said: Laugh and the world will laugh with you. Weep and you weep alone. So laughing is necessary for us.

    • Yes, jensenempire2551, a child’s laughter is special. And so is the laughter from those who have lived and who have seen life in all its peculiarities and who are still able to do so when perhaps most would find it impossible…
