on laughter and forgetting.

at the station
i ask a question
of my companion
about a book
we both just read
taking turns at it
b/t naps and baths

those words
about words
and the words
about words
about words
the words begat

i ask
this question
not because
i am concerned
or curious
but b/c we have
10 minutes left
before our train
and there's no surer
way of killing time
than talking it
to death
