On Funny

I am not funny
in the moment
when I try to be
I don’t write anything
my funny is accidental

I am too sensitive for funny
so I don’t hear my words
until they’re outside
my head

into your ears
laughter floats
into your mouth
bubbles of funny
pop out to surprise me

refections of your
laugh make me laugh
but
my funny is accidental

so you don’t have to chew
I’ll do it for you

your love, your loss
cradled in my hands

don’t worry there won’t be
words to pick
out of your back teeth

here comes the choo choo
