Contagious Laughter

There is a place

in man’s heart

for only truths.


Where snide remarks

meet with curmudgeonry

and swords pierce fog

on wordless afternoons.


Where callused hands on sweaty shovels

uncover  tenuous deceptions

shifting through the sands

like sidewinders.


Where each stroke

brings us nearer

to a soft core

full of unexpected jokes,

untainted romances,

and contagious laughter.
