I’ve Studied You


I’ve studied you,

Continue to…


Self-insistent, hyperbolic,

Never just, “I laughed”,

But …”laughed until I peed myself”.

(There really is just laughter,

all the rest hysteria):


Your conversation, what they said

And what they did,

With ‘I’ the center.

Knowing answers, you correct


You are moody, melancholy,

Lachrymose, you cry a lot.

Lively conversation – no.

If interrupted, you blow up.

It’s a lively monologue,

Voluble and volatile.


The way to be around you

Is to smile,


Give sympathy,

Make coffee, tea

And learn how much of that

Is me.
