what laughter is made of

I

can no longer understand what a laugh is–

so dense and intricate

with meanings, it is impossible

to tell what it contains:

knives, marshmallows, acid, feathers and/or thorns.

Make one mistake and

you may end up chocking

for breath

on the floor, gurgling

blood,

eyes

shining

with

disbelief.
