he was born laughing
it was an unusually warm morning in the month of march

to the astonishment of those present
the boy didn't cry at all
but would scream if he noticed
colors or lights that were too bright

like the nurse's fingernail polish
or the hospital lights on the ceiling
he would let out a scream
that would frighten everyone

and his hands shook
and his legs kicked relentlessly
but if he kept his eyes closed
he would only laugh


from HIS FOREARMS WERE TANKS NOW, track released March 3, 2010
