“I noticed this column on the  Advice page”/

He pulled out his paper with backpocket creases./

“The headline says  “‘Try Touching During Conversation'”./

He held off a natural beat,/

“You know, Just reading it to myself was a relief.”/

He did consider it  his candid  wit./

Though personally satisfying, no laughter,/

And after, Even sad but true.

    “And after, Even sad but true.”

    lines … it’s something we all do,
    but who speaks of it?
