gathering a laugh or two
i am stuck saying, “i’m stuck in ‘did i leave the stove on’ mode”.
i know that she has overheard me say it again since the first.
& once was more than enough.
each time said more confidently than the last.
gathering a laugh or two more than the last.
these laughs, we know, are not worth the fatigue it causes her & myself.
together we will continue to be drained by the sound of my own
voice until the laughs stop rolling in.
