shedding skin

a laugh and then perhaps something else
it takes a while before something else can truly be felt
after you, it took a while

i stand but maybe later there will be no more
sometimes time is all it takes before realization creeps in
there are no more corners to sink down into

we laugh and i stand -- rigid: both our actions
it will only come in the morning, the acceptance, hindsight
of both our backs turned, receding
