Waiting To Be Laughed At

At this point
the way we move should be something like a dance.
instead we blunder
into one another
fumbling
reaching for excuses
in like ways
hoping that whatever action
follows the course of logic.
Hoping that any reaction isn’t stronger
that what we might have expected.

Our size difference alone
should tell me all I need to know.
when we joke
it’s you who will get to have fun
to laugh and smile
as I hold back
waiting to be laughed at.
