HIGH COMEDY
(12/19/15)


laughing
for no reason
at all
is the best

the humor

the irony

the absurdity
of life

sometimes
totally bypass
the cerebral
cortex

they
sneak up
on us

slamming
squarely
into the gut
for a good
belly laugh

so unexpected

so cathartic

we are
reborn
comically

life again
seems possible

or seems
so absolutely
ridiculous
that nothing
really matters

either way
we are momentarily
free

with tears
to mark
the start
of the next
long
solemn stretch
of time
