Stop making me laugh if
you want me to stop laughing
stop laughing yourself a better way
to laugh than that word
this poem should make you laugh
are you laughing? I am not. This has
become a sad poem without laughter
if you laugh, this poem will get better
go pinch something from the store and
do it quietly without laughter
that is serious business. The tension
of theft. The theft of what you don't need
what you don't need is theft and theft
makes no sense to crabs, they just take
and they take with laughter. Boil that.
Now are you laughing? Are you crying?
Are you still reading? My god, you are still
reading. Stop reading. Thank you.
