Round

Laughter comes out in short bursts,
Even without sound
you know the gasp
of a laugh.
Silent
in a theater,
when it wasn't
meant to slip out.
And booming.
When you least expect it,
catching the joke off guard.
Chuckled
under your breath
during class
at a note your friend smudged out,
instead of taking notes.
You always recognize a laugh.
