Laughing Grace

Laughing Grace

is politically neutral

and most assuredly very incorrect

she used to post jokes

with her only phone number

on bathroom stalls

she cusses with made-up words

and listens to the trombone in her spare time

 

Laughing Grace drinks out of birdbaths

and spits watermelon seeds

rippling water wherever she goes

she dips into the peanut butter jar

at 3:00 am without a spoon

and you can always find her on swingsets

legs and toes pumping for the moon

 

she dances naturally

and links arms with her cousin Wild Grace

tiger lilies and queen anne’s lace

nod to her as she sweeps by

she always greets you with a “ciao bella”

and when least expected – Laughing Grace visits

the most welcome guest
