laughable

on the porch, and i
retreat into myself,
into a crowded wholesale
of saccharine thoughts
and i have a laugh,
because it's uncomplicated,
but so laughable,
these scenarios,
my mind a perpetual motion
picture show.
still,
i've familiarized myself
with your lines, with your face,
and your formulaic way
of licking the rim of the glass
and telling little lazy lies,
white half truths,
and i laugh,
because it's uncomplicated,
but so laughable,
these scenarios,
our talks burdened by circumvention,
tonight's a blur,
still,
it's uncomplicated.
