Joke

Hundreds of frogs jump out
of the stream at once
making the bank move like a curtain,
and the insects in the air are quickly
slaughtered.

A foreman dips while measuring
the work of his subordinates.
He likes how the bits of glass
tear through his gums.

A kid in class just can’t control
his laughter and his teacher
kicks his ribs while he
is rolling back and forth
along the floor.

With little skill they force
the door and dig through
all the drawers until they find
the silver key that they’ve been
looking for.

Vandalizing public spaces
to remind us we’re in space.
The planets look so real
against the orange firehouse.

Staring off past city lines
that cut up all the hillsides.
I wonder if its better to just
take it as a joke because it’s funny.
