That Little Laugh

Image copyright Mabh Savage 2022

No doubt you’ve seen us

The mischief makers

Followers of a chaotic

Maelstrom of love

A little smirk on our faces

A little laugh, perhaps

As we listen to words only

We can hear

Rocks and sweets and toys

In our pockets

No we don’t all have kids

But we all care for something

Maybe there’s a hint of cinnamon

A scratch of flint

A side eye across

An empty room

A hastily scribbled rune

On the back of a bus ticket

A snake tattoo

Or simply a nod

To the brightest star

You definitely know us

You’ve seen us around

We’ve seen you too

And so have They.
