He waits to fart at the urinal when someone else starts using the hand dryer

and yet he will never
be called a genius.
He can fold Doritos packets
into miniature triangles,
tighter than the minds
of the people who refuse
to open up to the fact
he can turn awkward situations
into a completely different shape.
