Irony

You dressed for
the occasion.
And I think,
Am I forgetting
or just failing
to see the beauty
in the buzzing
all around me?

You can leave
your tie on, even
and I will just stand here
at your service and
folded into your valleys
while the world crashes
around us and into me
at every turn.

Too few moments pass
without a pull in the
other direction and
I don’t want to go away.

As soon as it’s over
I think come back,
I want to try again.
You can leave
your tie on, even.
