Leavening the atmosphere discreetly,
Our friends don't tell jokes; they have digressions,
So they never hold intensive sessions,
Only gently, softly, smartly, sweetly
Gathering their wits and sitting neatly
Opposite, regarding our expressions
With concern, proposing some concessions
We might make to clear things up completely.

We're relaxed, and ready for exploring
Even notions that might make us queasy,
Feeling peaceful, standing light and breezy
In our own skins, practised in ignoring
Everything we fear. This isn't boring,
But it's not exciting. Just rest easy.
