Buzz Kill

You see,
I have it all
configured out
and have in fact
a graph made of laughter
and a diagram which features
my ever breathing diaphragm
I am also an expert on the
dynamic of everyday
exchanges of pleasantries
and I see them for
what they are
energy fields filled
with fake floral arrangements
and fraught with
the weeds
of conflict
I know all this
because I am
an expatriate
living in my own
with a bird’s
eye view of
a Vincent Price
like fly on
the wall
for help
and caught in
this web
forever fearing
the swat team
