I found these thoughts on laughing …
I want to have a really good laugh;
not a polite
or an effortless
not a tight-cheeked
that makes my face
of my body.
I want a deep, fat, uncontrollable laugh
that shakes my belly and sows tears
on my cheeks;
that erupts and cascades
all over the conversation;
that I surf as it surges but end up submerged;
that rumbles deliciously
like thunder in summer; that tricks me
into thinking it?s tamed, but that fractures afresh
when my eye catches yours; that?s raucous and rude
and defiantly unrepentant; that leaves me gasping
for breath but still wanting more; that goes underground
for hours at a time, then surfaces in dreams
in the dark of the night; that leaves me weak,
exhausted and satisfied.
What a picture!
