there are always
more words to be said;
words that aren't worth
the time it takes to think them.
but we say them anyhow,
and laugh the nervous laugh.

it surprises us with
it's sharpness, that laugh,
and it rings in our ears
long after its disappearance;
long after the words,
and everything they meant,
have faded away.
