By
do they wonder what I’m thinking?
are they amused by me
as I am by them?
do they think they’ve got me pegged
ready for packaging
fitting into anything
neatly?
this is why I laugh
do they know I’m looking through them?
are they aware of my eyes?
’tis doubtful
blind since birth we see what
is put in front of us only
this is why I laugh
do they hear what I hear?
do they see things in the light I do?
furtive smiles and repressed gasps
are the tip of the iceberg
it’s not as simple as I seem
this is why I laugh.
they just don’t get the joke.
