Laughter

laughter

that straight face
has served you well
through four seasons
and many years

when you could have
screamed for help
instead of letting things
undo themselves

slit of a mouth
crooked nose
faulty sound system
and video

straight face
remains exposed
kissed and slapped
seldom repaired

you've still got
a use for it l see
it hasn't aged a bit
more than me
