my name is three syllables, eight letters long.

i learn something new everyday

like how people only like you

if you notice their new shoes

or laugh at their jokes.

 

it amazes me how someone can

love you in their drunken persona

but refuse to recognize you

or remember your name the next morning.

 

i try to remember names, i really do.

sometimes i laugh at people’s jokes

to make them feel funnier

out of kindness.

 

but reality is

if your jokes were as funny

as how ugly your shoes were,

this laugh would be sincere.
