“Dying is Easy. Comedy is Very Hard.”

And the crowd always Delights

“Dying is Easy. Comedy is Very Hard.”

As the days pass and the nights and the mornings

We place the comedy masks over our faces

And the stage is set and the choir sings

And the bell always

Rings

As the curtain opens and the audience and the spotlights

We blind ourselves to perform

And the act begins and the director smites

And the crowd always

Delights

As the trap doors open and the falling and the “quickly!”

We plummet into the desolate darkness

And we land with a crack and the masks break off cleanly

And our faces show always

Tragedy

The sailors say I'm a fine girl. Graphic designer, illustrator, writer, reader, gamer, dreamer, storyteller. I make things and care about them. My life exists somewhere between painfully logical and lost in an overly complicated daydream.
