Small Talk

by Richard Mcallister

How was your day?’

Don’t ask me that, don’t ask me about things you don’t care about. 

Ask me how I feel, ask me what I’ve been thinking, ask me anything but ‘How was your day?’.

Did you have a nice summer?’

Don’t ask me that, don’t ask me about things you don’t care about.

Ask me about my dreams, ask me about my regrets, ask me anything but ‘Did you have a nice summer?’

Don’t ask me and I won’t ask you.
