This Woman

just entered the gallery and immediatly said,
"Well guess what painting he decided to put right in front of his desk!"
I joined the laughter, which I do as a reflex. I am not sure why we are laughing and this is not new so I do not question it.
Then I question it.
Her laughter was meant to reveal her meaning, it seemed.
Were we both laughing without knowing why?
What a strange place.
I found myself wanting to defend myself,
"Oh, I didn't choose to put that painting there, this isn't even my desk, I just hang the paintings."

the painting in question appears above
