Definition #187Laughter


What a language it is, the laughter of women,

high-flying and subversive.

Long before law and scripture

we heard the laughter, we understood freedom.

The last stanza of Lisel Mueller’s Poem: “The Laughter of Women”

locked in rage: put down?

imagine trust: laugh  at strength:

fly through faith, trust, love!
