Seagulls and Chips

Kooky quasi–serious conversations
That amused look between good friends 
Where words aren’t needed 
The quirk of a brow 
The half grin secretly sitting on the corner of your mouth

It takes one line of absurd ridiculousness
Hilarity ensues chaotically 
The giggles becoming guffaws 
As tummies tighten and heave 
With shared laughter

Tears spill out joyfully
As our breathing gets harder 
As we can barely get out words 
Just a few hees and wahahahas 
Deep in breath and it starts again

Until we’re a writhing mass of giggles
And finally the fun fit abates, slightly 
Now mere hiccups of humour 
Tampered down to bemusement 
Oh, old friend you do make me laugh so
