A Year of Harsh Laughter

         What is
This old movie

You keep

Watching it alone—
The dark side

Of a wall
& me handing you

A camera!
You knew death—

His blue hands!
His paranoid children

Growing paranoid hair!
Nothing but winter, you sd,

Ever feels like this!
& when you finished talking

I knew there was no
Aspect of meaning

In anything you told me
Only baguettes

Of ennui, etc
& you—the one

I can’t mock

Or divest myself of—
One more day

& I’ll be
In love
