NPM 17

On the way to buy beer my friend saved the rest of us
from a nasty spill by taking the spill for himself.

There was the “oh shit!”
the pause
the “are you okay?”
and then of course the laughter

At the hotel after he washed his knee
and cursed the tear in his new jeans
we watched the Best Fails of 2009
and provided the Bob Saget laugh track.

At the end I said it was only funny to me
because I knew everyone walked away okay

but realized that there was no way I could know.
