by Peter Schwartz

laugh with me and I become your silkworm.

laugh at me and I become your poison porpoise.

either way, I’d really like it if you laughed.

  1. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.
    Fart and you stand alone.

  2. I really liked this, don't know why but it's stuck in my head

  3. Thanks playahs. Should have some longer poems coming out here soon, too. Take care.
