Don’t tell me you are fine
None of us is fine
we nod and smile
longing to chat.
More than anyone else I talk to my cat –
Even the geese down by the river
to what I have to say.
I had quite a conversation
this very day 
With one who chattered back.
He cocked his head and listened to my candid response
His answer?
Don’t tell me you are fine
when none of us is fine.
we have tried to pass the days
in many and varied ways 
But comes the time 
When weariness crosses the line
And yet – we all say we are fine.

Good point. We have all gone through so much with the pandemic. I do know what it is like when wild animals actually listen to us speaking to them :)
