Andrew laughing

Don’t be misled

- that laughter you hear

when he’s chortling out loud;

it’s not strictly true

- more like a starburst

of consciousness

squeezed through a tube

and forcing out through

a man-child, a youth,

mocking

the whole of your folly,

(your silliness too)

and his own little strangenesses,

wobbliness, awkwardness;

questioning outwardly

if you see it too?

Ultimately a funny

attempt only

at reconciliation:

and a heartrending judgment of you.
