Man Laughs

It’s not funny, yet the idiot laughs;

he knows it’s expected, he complies with a reflex.

From a distance, added context,

his laugh is all the more ridiculous,

jarring hollow in my ears,

hideous.

I was an idiot,

sad but true.

Let’s blame it on youthful ignorance,

indiscretion,

being in a rush to find and express myself,

still, I blush,

remembering…

I was an idiot yesterday.
