a non-spoken hello

Uncategorized

small talk

 

 

it’s an american thing, right?

or is it a midwest thing?

 

to greet everyone with

“how are you?”

 

setting us up for lies

with every “I’m well.”

 

Because really,

random human in passing,

you don’t even want to hear

about the turmoil of my emotions today

 

and it’s insulting to the elation of every mood

when I tell you

it’s fine.

 

 

 

we have to stop

numbing ourself to the pleasing standard
