Don’t miss the joke or
malign the sublime gesture,
some of us are still in middle school
when it comes to expressing our desires
the dying fires of last night’s
escapade, a serenade where I
played the most beautiful music
to seduce you and you missed the beat.
I’ll laugh it off and create a new space
where I am the master and no disasters
can topple my ego. The key is to be
self-deprecating at first, that’s
common ground, then start to sound
more and more confident, bit by bit,
until suddenly I am myself completely
again, giggling and snorting,
because life’s too short to be hoarding
moments of disappointment.
