author's note:

I think it's okay to joke about your own pain--as long as you don't joke about anyone else's.


Some of us
when in deep agony
will only say:

yes, we squeak a little joke

hoping to ease the burden
of those who fear for our soul.

Well, maybe I should open more
but in my defense, let me confess:

when you worry over me
I think you think I can't manage
such deep agony

but obviously I can--
if I couldn't I wouldn't
be able to restrain my cry
to a silly-sad
