“The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.”  Robert Hand

The Show Pony

Clippity-clop, clippity-clop,
comes the show pony,
man, what a performance,
sighing, shifting,
surely not drawing attention,
disagreeably terse,
momentarily incomunicado,
pouting, shifting, drifting,
back again,
unrelated, off-topic,
every subject an expert,
eyes averted,
machine-gun style,
embarrassed laughter,
looking for approval,
sharing anger uninvited,
we simply listened,
accepted,
and held you
knowing.
