Hiroshi Shinoda


That city in Africa
where everyone started laughing
one by one
and they couldn’t stop
no one could stop laughing
even to eat or drink
or breathe
I read about it
and dreamt it last night
they couldn’t eat or drink or breathe
and they couldn’t stop laughing
one by one
that city in Africa
and the silence
came in the night
and swallowed it up
that city in Africa
when the laughing stopped
everyone was gone
one by one
but in the dream all I could think
-- the dream last night --

Hiroshi Shinoda recommends "How to Eat an Oriole" by Anderson Holderness at>kill author.

(For December at Everyday Genius, contributors were asked to recommend something elsewhere on the Internet.)
