Grimace of Death

Laughter from the other room spooks her,
as if there's a den of thieves in there
crouched conspiratorily round the table
plotting obscene acts.

The laughter seems immodest and inappropriate -
far exceeding the humour of any joke
she could imagine -

sullying the dignity of a funeral day.
