Pagliacci

Location

Underneath my left breast

carved into my ribs in powdered jet

8.11.14

the day the happiest man alive

killed himself

and we all found out

that he was pagliacci

 

La Commedia è finita!

The comedy is over!

 

It made me wonder who else

is a crying clown

who else

laughs but never smiles

 

who else among us

is pagliacci
