The Laughing Man

 

 

I see a man

bent slightly forward

hands in face

as if he is putting on a mask

He sobs

the only way

a man who wears boots and cream shorts can

screams with misery

then he takes his hands from his face

he starts to laugh

and his face changes

then he looks at me

and laughs even louder

 

 

 

 

Mrs Woo

 

 

 

We went to the fish and chip shop

me

and her

I ordered two fish and chips

Mrs Woo

asked if we wanted salt and vinegar

I said vinegar for me

and she said

only salt for her

I told Mrs Woo

we could not be more different

She just looked at me

confused

the way a lot of people do
