Laughing Apace


a silly little cameo to
tease a smile from otherwise
engaged nonsensicalities

teeth bared in a taut-lip
caricature of a grimaced grin
caught out day-dreaming

yep, that’s me, barely inured
to rhythms within but seen to
be responding to procedures

it wasn’t what I failed which
made the grade but how I
lived with such certainty

laughing apace kept peace
stable and made this
love of life consummate
