Can't understand

when in the drowsy hours
you speak to me in tongues
I can't understand,
is when I realize we must
be doing this for a reason,
to get to some end, or
to prove something lost,
and you wait patiently for me to answer
in huffy silence until you recall that I can't
speak a bit of mandarin
and you laugh, a sweet,
funny kinda laugh before
you fall asleep and forget.
