There is an art to a good joke,

The art of delivery.

For all her sobriety, cynicism, and deep desire to be left alone

all the time

I know the best joker.

She can make me lose my balance,

pee, or lose my bowels.

And make me double take,

“Wait, are you teasing me?”

All through her delivery.

Twelve hours after her last good joke,

and my abs still hurt in the morning light.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
