My girlfriend erupts on the bed
spewing joy throughout the room,
the heat of her laughter
I am lucky.
On a good day,
I get to experience this
at least once or twice,
the surprised reaction of her body
to some unexpected delight,
and rippling in waves.
The cause of this event
is rarely as entertaining to me
as the event itself,
watching her spasm
as she makes music.
Few people get to hear the full symphony
of her laugh
on a regular basis.
But I get to bathe in it often.
They say to partner with someone who makes you laugh.
What they forget is you must also find someone
with laughter worth loving.
