He laughs too much

like he is perpetually drunk on some liquor

that poisons the heart

while decieving the mind.

He throws his head back  and

let his shoulders rise and fall in spasms and

sways on his feet and

distorts his dark face and

beats his chest with his palms and

pushes a trottle through his throat and

runs out of breath and

gasps frantically for air and

chokes on his saliva and

tries to cough and

falls on his knee and

drops on his hands and

topples to his side and

stops laughing

for good.
