Just Words (Poetry)

Just Words
By Kira A. Moore 


“I’m fine.”

“I’m good.”

“I’m ok.”

Automatic answers to automatic questions.

Spoken with the same concern as “hello” or “see you later.”

No one looks, no one sees.

No one speaks and no one listens.

We are wrapped in the folds of our own realities,

anything outside is to be ignored and forgotten.
