finding different ways to laugh

As my mind bends towards liberation
I’m finding different ways to laugh
It’s slow going cuz so much we are taught to laugh at is mired in toxins of oppression
Even how we joke

But I’m a funny bunny
And I’ll free my joy one day

How I love laughing wildly
Howling on my knees

Many thanks to those of you near and far
Who are mirthful despite it all
Knowing too well how so many people’s laughter is oppressive
And finding just the touch to tickle us into cascade of delicious giggles

Free from shame
