from the first light that glows upon

the single stool, glass filled with the

comedian’s drink of choice, all

set next to one mic alone,

there is nothing but anticipation in

the room,

no matter how dank,

no matter how drunk the audience is---

the comedian promises

at least the possibility of smiles &

laughter.

 

this we know,

because we have laughed at jokes before &

it feels good to laugh,

it makes us smile &

as humans, our stress goes away,

if only for those brief moments,

when we are captivated by the mastery of

wit, which the brilliant comedian

wields. 

 

now a magician,

one who does not rely on props,

one who does not promise to make landmarks

disappear,

one who deals strictly in the street,

one who works with deception with the sole intention

of amazing us &

opening our eyes wide with

wonder.
