How are you, then? Does it rain these days?
And your father: is he out in the field? And is your mother
Busy cooking some meal? Did any of your friends call?
How are classes — still going? Did you go for that class
That you wanted to, in sewing?
Are you keeping well? Are you happy where you are?
Happier than last year? Are you feeling good
Your mind made and as memories fade? Are you looking ahead
So, that life becomes a continuation? Do you think there
Is a way for yourself and the population?
You are where you are, Define the cause by the effect.
The motivation, by the outcome. Don’t answer rhetorical questions.
I’m indifferent to what is an answer. Just a photo in my phone,
I take my bags when I move on.
