laugh and

laugh and
by Joshua Wangler
laughed and
bit my fingernails until
my teeth ached – because
were you aware
were you aware
that this right
here lasts forever
that’s right longer than
high school and
that cast on your arm when it was broken in football and
how your dad yells but didn’t mean to and
the middle of the night age 7,8,9, crying in the kitchen to wake mom
whoever up, pretending it was
because of the dark
