Niceties – NaPoWriMo 2017 #13


people don’t really want to know

how you’re doing or where you’re from
they don’t care if you’re feeling glum
that’s tmi, just let it go

it’s just polite, it’s not a slight,
a nicety that means “hello”
they’ll ask, just smile, don’t succumb

people don’t really want to know
