Today’s prompt was to write an answer poem. I came up with two, though the second one really took more time than I should have taken. Almost late to work today. ^_^


How Are You?

Everyone says “good,”
whether they really are
or not,
or “fine, just fine.”

And sometimes when I say
fine or good or whatever
I say
I am not really fine,
I am more
or less
or a combination of things
all at once
that cannot really be
answered in a single word,
not in a sentence,
nor a poem,
nor even a novel
at times.

So I say, “Fine,
I’m fine, thank you.
And you?”
