thunder laughs


I showed him
my lifetime membership
to Become Pretty Gym.

"My trainer Joy
said after only a few weeks
the beauty I have buried
underneath all my layers
will sprout to the surface,"
I told him.

Rich bright brass laughs
erupted from his chest
and electrocuted my heart
igniting the rain cycle
in my tear ducts.

great use of sadness and joy, no one likes to be laugh at, I like your detail of tear ducts

bummer what a careless cad,
written in an easy, natural tone.
