The only thing left in the room was Death
hiding beneath the kitchen sink:
“I'm not real!” It cried
“I'm just a rumor spread by life ...”
Laughing I threw it out, kitchen sink and all
and suddenly realized Humor
was all that was left —
All I could do with Humor was to say:
“Out the window with the window!”
