A Wise Ahem, A Soft Demurring Cough

Today we thought we’d be
as thoughtful as we thoughtfully
could be. Avoiding sophistry,
we’d weigh each way of looking
at a thing until we’d plucked it

like a soup-bound chicken wing.
With furrowed brows, and sighs --
we’d now and then emit a wise
ahem, a soft demurring cough.
We think we brought it off.
