Punch Lines and Photons

…talking with a friend about our mothers’ elder sense of humor
””””””””””””””””””””
what’s the difference between
humor and light?
.
even in gloomy shuttered rooms
a ray successfully invades
through impossible slits
and penetrates wherever
shadows rule

one joke, one laugh,
a silly recollection,
and disease for a instant
disappears

punch lines and photons,
comedians and brilliant suns
bring us as close to god
as anyone need be
