Ha Ha

You don’t find me very funny
lounging against the back of
some overstuffed
restaurant booth
eyes rolled to the top
and lips skewed to the side.

When we get here
I know the lines I toe
playfully hoping from one side to the other
one side
then the other
and even then
just here
I can tell when it’s gone from annoyance
to something maybe
a little more severe.

And just here
I haven’t figured out
that when that happens
I should get out of your way.
