Why Are You Laughing? - Poem by Steve Samuels

Why are you laughing?
The story is about you.
The tantalized observer
Longing for water
That's just out of reach.

He dips his lips
Into the stream
That streams away
Carrying his reflection.
The lips, still here,
Are dry.

He cries out
'I see you,
I have you'
And laughter echoes
As the water
Slips away.
