Apocalyptic Laughter
Change

Suggestions and comments are always appreciated.

The things that make me laugh?
 1
The bitter world spinning round,
 2
A top about to fall.
 3
We weigh because this world spins to fast
 4
To lose some weight, we have to slow it down
 5
So put on the break,
 6
untwine the ropes,
 7
smother the fires,
 8
melt the steal of gears-
 9
And the sound of the sea will rise, water washing
 10
Over the beach, breezes rustling giant leaves.
 11
We will be abandoned; alone, floating through space
 12
With nothing that should be and
 13
Everything that really should be.
 14
We will be alone In the end.
 15
The pursuant silence, that echoes in the ears
 16
Hearing a heart beat for the first time,
 17
Domestic violence, the creeping of my years
 18
Hearing a breath fall silent and still
 19
Economic compliance, An orphan's tears
 20
The top falls, and skidders away into the shadows
 21
Under its own power
 22
And I laugh
 23
Because I cried that it was gone.
